Building fire set by squatters

Since 1997, Scuttlebutt has been providing sailing news but there are plenty of Scuttlebutts – breweries, bars, coffee shops, and book stores. And for anyone driving through Louisiana on Interstate 10, there was also the Scuttlebutt Gentlemen’s Club in Slidell.
The building has been quiet since it closed a year ago, but has been back in the news when emergency services were required to extinguish a building fire set by squatters.
Known for its iconic pink establishment, and ‘follow me to the butt’ bumper stickers, the latest chapter occurred when a woman attempted to burn another’s clothing after they got into an argument.
