A Florida father has been jailed after taking his teenage daughter and her friend to a strip club, where they snorted cocaine, drank booze and danced onstage with a stripper pole, authorities said.

The Pink Pony in Doral was raided by police earlier this week after the arrest of Jose Manuel Arguelles, 59, who allegedly made several trips to the joint accompanied by his 16-year-old daughter and her 17-year-old friend, police said.

Arguelles was taken into custody after the girl’s mother found cellphone photos of the teens “drinking alcohol and snorting cocaine,” according to the arrest warrant, WTVJH-TV reported.

The Pink Pony is out of business pending an investigation of the alleged crimes.

The daughter told investigators that her dad took her to the club several times. The 17-year-old’s father said Arguelles gave his daughter pot, alcohol and cocaine.

He is being held in lieu of $45,000 bail.

The dad is charged with child neglect, giving drugs to minors and eliciting sexual performances from a child.

Arguelles’ attorney told a judge Thursday his client did not force his child to simulate sex.

“Judge, look, I know this is serious. But dancing on stripper pole is not simulated sexual intercourse,” lawyer Chris Mancini said.
