Back in 2009, Shane Trice, who owned the popular LGBT nightclub Backstreet and several other gay bars, was arrested, and his club was shuttered after undercover Memphis Police officers say they witnessed illegal drug sales, illegal alcohol sales, and gambling inside the club on at least six occasions.
Trice owned two other bars in Memphis — Metro and Mary's — and they remained open for awhile after Backstreet's closure. But eventually, Trice closed both bars and left town. Now there is a warrant for Trice's arrest in Florida, issued by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. Trice is accused of opening credit cards and cell phone accounts using former employees' social security numbers and dates of birth.
