Aussie strippers tackle dressing room thief

No abs were injured when a cast member from Thunder From Down Under — the Australian male strip group performing in Las Vegas — was hit in the face by a ricocheted bullet.

The cast discovered a man rifling through its belongings in their locker room at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino on Tuesday night, according to Las Vegas TV station KVVU.

The cast confronted the man and pushed him out of the dressing room and into a courtyard.

It was then, the station says, that the man pulled out a gun and fired a shot in the air. The shot ricocheted off of a wall … and hit one of the cast members in the face.

The Associated Press reported that the suspect was taken to a Las Vegas hospital with unspecified injuries pending transfer to the Clark County jail. His name wasn’t immediately released. TMZ reports the cast member’s injury was minor.

A representative for MGM Resorts International told TMZ that Wednesday’s show would go on as planned.Excalibur HotelFeaturesGossipLas VegasThunder From Down Under
