Oh my, my.. Sweet Illusions….. I used to work here….. Miss me Wayne?
SPRINGFIELD – An 18-year-old man is facing a number of charges, including seven felonies, after Springfield police say he fired a gun at a stripper’s car at least five times last week.
Jabari Lee Arbogast Jr., of Eugene, allegedly entered Sweet Illusions on South A Street, where the woman is a dancer, at 12:20 p.m. March 26.
She was not at work at the time and has a restraining order against Arbogast, according to police dispatch logs.
Arbogast was acting disorderly at the club and threatening to shoot employees, because the woman allegedly owes him money, police said.

Arbogast had left the strip club before police arrived.
Officers were then dispatched to a report of a drive-by shooting on the 4000 block of Southway Loop.
Several 911 callers reported a man had just fired rounds from a gun at an unoccupied parked car, police said. The gun was a .22-caliber weapon, police said, and bullets skipped off the car and ricocheted down the street.
The shooter then got into a red Chevrolet and left the area, heading east toward 41st Street, callers told police.
Detectives identified Arbogast as the shooter, police said.
He was arrested Saturday at the Motel 6 in Glenwood. Arbogast and Austin Jacob Wilfong-Ciarlante, 42, were in a room together, according to police dispatch logs. Police advised both men to come out of the room with their hands up and empty. Both men complied and Arbogast was taken into custody on 13 charges, including five counts of recklessly endangering, five counts of unlawful use of a weapon, and single counts of first-degree criminal mischief and carrying a concealed firearm. He was also booked on a charge of unlawful delivery of heroin related to a warrant.
