MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — The manager of a Myrtle Beach night club was charged with interfering with the rights of a blind or disabled person when he refused to allow a veteran with a service dog enter the club.
WMBF-TV reports the 24-year-old vet tried to enter the Penthouse Club early last Saturday morning but was told he and his service dog could not enter.
According to the police report, club manager Kenny Arthur Frosch said the club is privately owned and it could refuse service to anyone it wanted to.
But police said the law does not allow service to be refused on the basis of a disability.
No listing for Frosch could be found in Myrtle Beach and there was no answer Tuesday afternoon at the club.
