There’s nothing worse than being embarrassed in front of a stripper. So imagine 67-year-old James Allen Wells’ frustration when his debit card was declined while trying to pay for a lap dance. He was so enraged that he left the club, got a handgun opened fire outside the establishment.
According to authorities, Wells was at Porsches Theater of the Arts strip club in Waterloo, Iowa (not pictured above) Saturday night. When his debit card was rejected, Wells left the club, retrieved a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson Revolver and opened fire in the club’s parking lot.
As The Courier reports, Wells squeezed off five shots and managed to hit a couple of parked cars.
One bullet hit Dodge Durango in the rear window, a Chrysler Town and County was hit in the tailgate by a bullet and lodged in the back seat, and other bullets struck a Chevrolet Impala’s driver’s side door and windshield and lodged in the dashboard.

Wells then took off, leading police on a high-speed chase. He was finally stopped when his vehicle hit a curb and was arrested after fighting with police officers. Authorities stated one officer was injured during the altercation.
Wells was arrested for carrying weapons, two counts of second-degree criminal mischief, five counts of reckless use of a firearm, two counts of assault on a peace officer and one count each of eluding, reckless driving, interference while armed and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
Note that, against all odds, there’s no mention of a DUI charge.
