The Rio hotel-casino has closed its adult pool indefinitely after failing a Metro Police "integrity check," a property spokesperson said Tuesday.

The Sapphire Pool was closed after Metro Police made discoveries during a routine check Saturday, spokeswoman Deanna Pettit said. Pettit wouldn't discuss the findings and referred questions to Metro Police, who couldn't be reached for comment late Tuesday afternoon.

The Sapphire Pool was the Rio’s topless pool, where Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club dancers would appear topless during the day. Sapphire removed any mention of the pool from its Web site today.

The main pool at the Rio will remain open but the property has decided not to reopen a topless pool, Pettit said.
