HOUSTON, TX – Heading to “the track” in Houston might not mean exactly what you think.
No, we aren’t going for a jog!
The track is a stretch of the 9000 block of Bissonnet, which is currently under investigation for prostitution.
Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan has filed a lawsuit against some of the businesses here that have become a popular site for prostitutes-namely a Burger King and Cubes nightclub.
The Houston Police Department has responded to over 1,000 calls for service within the past two years along that block alone.
A hearing for the case will be on July 29. In the meantime, if someone invites you to go to the track anytime soon, you might want to ask them to specify.
