Naked Florida Woman on Golf Cart Interrupts Police Standoff

A standoff between Florida police and an armed teenager over the weekend was interrupted by a woman taking a midnight ride on a golf cart — while she was completely naked. The incident happened in Dunedin, where authorities had formed a perimeter around a gun-toting teen who’d planted himself on the roof of a house, according to authorities. As officers were negotiating with the gunman, a naked woman — later identified as 28-year-old Jessica Smith — drove through the line of patrol cars in the direction of “the target house of where the armed suspect was on the roof,” according to an incident report. Although officers ordered Smith to stop, she ignored their demands and continued driving — until officers caught up with her, that is. After the “completely nude” Smith was “assisted out in handcuffs,” she was booked on an obstruction charge, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday. The complaint also notes that Smith “smelled of alcohol.” She’s since been released on her own recognizance, court records indicate. Is there a reason police didn’t charge Smith with public nudity? Have you ever gone outside without any clothes on?
