The Forest County Potawatomi Tribe of Wisconsin apologized to a casino patron who was removed for allegedly violating the facility's dress code.

Becky Paszkiewicz was at the Potawatomi Hotel and Casino in Milwaukee last Monday when she was told that her jean shorts were too short, CBS 58 reported. But the tribe later said security erred in removing Paszkiewicz and her girlfriend from the facility.

"Unfortunately, what happened in this particular instance did not fall within the spirit of that dress code," the casino said in a statement to CBS 58. "We apologize for any embarrassment that this guest experienced as part of the incident. We will review the policy and take measures to make sure it is being appropriately enforced in the future.”

Two other patrons said they have faced similar issues in posts on the casino's Facebook page. One man said his girlfriend was also told that her shorts were too shirt and a woman said the the dress code policy is "arbitrary and unclear."
