Casino’s code bans saggy pants
Guests in Ohio’s first casino are prohibited from wearing saggy pants and shirts printed with offensive images under a newly posted code of conduct.
The downtown Horseshoe Casino Cleveland opened May 14 and recently posted the conduct guidelines at entrances. A casino spokeswoman tells reporters the standards are meant to create a safe, pleasant environment for visitors and staff.
The rules include other clothing restrictions and ban firearms, loitering and running.
The executive director of the Ohio Casino Control Commission tells The Plain Dealer officials support conduct guidelines that give casinos a framework for turning away visitors who are there “for the wrong reasons.”
The casino in Cleveland was the first of four to open. Toledo’s casino opened in late May. Casinos also are planned in Cincinnati and Columbus.
