A North Carolina nightclub owner has been charged after investigators say he allowed patrons to openly have sex in his business.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Saturday that 39-year-old Aaron Gabriel Dean of Hendersonville was charged with two misdemeanor counts of allowing sex acts at an establishment licensed to serve alcohol.

He was released on $500 bail. A home phone listing for Dean could not be found and there was no answer at his club, the Blu Lounge in Arden.

According to search warrants, uncover Alcohol Law Enforcement agents saw people having sex on three different visits to the club while Dean was there.

Until his case is heard, Dean can continue operating the club, but faces the loss of his alcohol permit and a fine if he is found guilty.
