LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A lawsuit has been filed against an adult entertainment club in Louisville after a man said he was injured by a security guard.

The lawsuit says Dustin Esterly was injured at Trixies in May 2019. It claims the owners and managers should have known the security guard — Paul Alan Chitwood — had violent tendencies and used illegal weapons.

Esterly is suing for his injuries, medical bills, future medical expenses and loss of enjoyment of life. He's asking for a jury trial.

Chitwood denies the allegations in the lawsuit.
