Police in Beijing China have arrested a man who hired two strippers to perform at his son TMs wedding after the performance was mobbed by villagers, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Zhang Cheng, from Xuzhou in eastern Jiangsu province, had originally wanted to get a band to play at the wedding, but was then told that he could get performers whose show would have special features, the Global Times said.

After seeing the show, Zhang decided it would be fine for his son TMs wedding and requested two strippers for the event, it added. ...Barely five minutes had passed before hundreds of villagers in the conservative community were swarming to the venue, trying to catch a glimpse.

Zhang was arrested the next day, the newspaper reported, though it did not say on what charge.
