CINCINNATI -- The city has sued to close the Diamond Palace Nightclub after undercover officers say they witnessed nude dancing in June.

The city, which owns the building located on Elm Street, says the nightclub is actually a strip club, claiming:

> On June 17, undercover officers witnessed nude, semi-nude and lap dancing.

> A year ago, undercover officers went inside and found 20 females dancing in various stages of undress.

The club does not have a sexual business license and employees who danced nude were arrested.

Opherra Jones, 21, was taken into custody on Oct. 10. "While she was in a state of semi-nudity, [she] allowed numerous patrons to touch her butt and body. [She] danced in a semi-state of nudity without having a sexually oriented business license," according to court documents.

Jones is scheduled for arraignment in a Hamilton County courtroom at 9 a.m.
