Topless club sued over patron’s death

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the Crazy Horse Too topless club and three employees over the beating death of a man whose body was found next to some nearby railroad tracks.

The lawsuit, filed through attorney Randall Pike on behalf of the family of Scott David Fau, claims the club at 2476 Industrial Road permitted its employees to injure the California man on Aug. 4, 1995.

Fau, according to the lawsuit, "surely must have consciously experienced the terror of his own imminent death" at the hands of the club's employees "who demonstrated malicious, lethal intent."

In addition to the business, the lawsuit names Paul Luca, Darrin Brey and Michael Muscat, a manager.

The victim's wife, Francesca, and two daughters, Nocole and Camille, are seeking unspecified general and punitive damages from the Crazy Horse Too.

Although the defendants had not yet been served with a copy of the lawsuit, club executive Bart Rizzolo said he had no recollection of the incident and suggested the lawsuit was groundless.

"There has got to be a way to get back at people who file lawsuits," he said. "There has never been a suit filed that we haven't beaten and I'm hoping our record will stay that way."

Rizzolo said the club is concerned about the way patrons are treated.

"If a customer gets out of line, we help the guy out, we don't throw him out," he said.
