Bartender Accused of Having Sex for Tips

Three people in St. Landry Parish have been accused of engaging in obscene acts in full view of bar patrons. But the bar manager tells KATC surveillance video proves nothing happened. The arrests took place at a bar called Hank's Place off Highway 93 - south of Opelousas. We want to warn you viewer descretion is advised.

In the security video, you can see bartender Leslie Bergeron rocking back and forth. Her boss - manager Merlin Hanks says she was just tapping her foot with patron Robert Credeur behind her. "Did y'all see any obscenity in that - did you - you watched it," asked Hanks after he showed the video to KATC. Minutes after the alleged incident, deputies rushed in to arrest all three on obscenity charges.

Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says two undercover deputies saw Bergeron participate in obscene acts with both Hanks and Credeur. "From sexual intercorse to other obscene activities," says Guidroz. He continues, "we were told barmaids were conducting that activity for more and better tips." Hank says the undercover officers were sitting across the bar from the alleged action - arguing the deputies did not have a clear view.

The sheriff says neighbors have been complaining about the obscene activity for weeks. One neighbor spoke out, but didn't want her face on camera. "There were very lewd acts - he promotes prostitution," says the neighbor.

Sheriff Guidroz says Bergeron admitted to the acts. Her boss believes that confession was forced. All three suspects have bonded out of jail. The sheriff says more arrests could be made. He's also investigating similar possible crimes at another St. Landry Parish bar.
