Sheriff busts nude dancers  

Strippers, owner jailed for indecency
Dancer says cites Free Expression

Pink Pussy Kat performer Susanne Marie Haines was arrested more than half a dozen times in the summer of 1969 as she exercised right her right of Free Expression by dancing “bottomless.” Sacramento Sheriff John Misterly, no fan of the hippy 'free love' movement, acted to hold the line against 'lude' behavior.
