Moose Lodge gone wild?

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Some Pittsburgh residents are complaining that the local Moose Lodge has gone wild, with noisy parties featuring scantily clad women.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that police say neighbors in the Lawrenceville neighborhood are complaining about the lodge. Police say they found YouTube videos claiming to be from Lawrenceville Moose events that show women dancing around a pole as music blares and men throw cash.

Lodge treasurer Paul Kelly says there's a pole but he's never seen anybody naked on it and there's no illegal activity.

Lauren Byrne, director of the Lawrenceville United community group, says she's received at least 50 complaints about loud noise and disorderly conduct during the past six months.

Kelly says he's working to soundproof a wall to reduce the noise that neighbors hear.
