Waco stripper Amber Renee Cheek was found guilty Tuesday of assault for striking another stripper in the head with a Mountain Dew bottle, punching her and biting both of her surgically enhanced breasts.
Staci Fox told the jury she was wearing only a string thong throughout the Dec. 10, 2009, brawl with Cheek at Sonny’s BYOB in Waco, said Fox’s attorney, John Hand.
At issue for the jurors: Who instigated the fight?
Testimony revealed Cheek, who is said to be in her late 20s, was trying to leave the South Loop 340 strip club before the end of her shift, Hand said. The club’s management wouldn’t give her the money she already had earned that night, testimony revealed.
Fox, who is in her early 20s, kept interrupting Cheek’s plea to leave.
Hand argued that Cheek attacked only in self-defense. The jury didn’t buy it and took about two hours to decide Cheek was guilty.
She will be sentenced at 10 a.m. today in County Court-at-Law Judge Mike Gassaway’s court.
Fox testified that she couldn’t strip anymore because of the unsightly bite marks on her breasts, Hand said.
Crime scene photos show the bite marks, located next to her tattoo of the name “Bucky.”
