The 33-year-old mother was arrested Monday (Feb. 18) and charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child after allegedly organizing and paying for strippers as a birthday surprise for her underage son.
Police said the incident occurred at Spare Time Bowling Center in South Glen Falls, N.Y. back in November. Viger is accused of hiring the strippers to dance with and on her son and his friends, who were all under the age of 17. Pictures of the party were circulated that reportedly showed a “scantily clad, tattooed woman clinging upside down to a seated teen.”
Officials said some partygoers were as young as 13.
Several witnesses and parents were interviewed before cuffing Viger earlier this week.
Tops In Bottoms, the company that supplied the strippers, said the dancers had no idea that anyone at the party was underage.
Viger is due in court on March 7.
