Woman gets nearly naked in Arizona city to be arrested

After spending a couple of evenings in the desert, a Lake Havasu City, Arizona, woman got nearly naked at the city Police Department so she could be arrested and spend the night in jail.

Police reports indicate that 37-year-old Virginia Pierce showed up at the department at 9:48 p.m. on May 19, telling an officer she was staying away from her home because her boyfriend was using drugs.

Police said they were unable to substantiate her claim that she should be arrested on a warrant before she took off her top, flashed her breasts and encouraged her arrest.

Pierce reportedly threatened to run down the street topless and began to take down her pants when police refused to place her under arrest.

Officers obliged at that time, booking her into jail for disorderly conduct.
