Woman arrested for stripping naked at airport

Share This
A woman was arrested after she stripped off her clothes and strolled through Miami International Airport baggage claim - before she was seen sitting naked on top of a police cruiser. 


The woman, who has not been identified, was caught on camera walking through the airport in her blue bra and pants just before midnight on Wednesday, singing aloud to herself.

She then proceeded to remove her bra, followed by her pants, leaving her completely nude. 

Bemused airport staff and passengers looked on as she waved her bra in the air.

Moments later, the woman was spotted sitting naked in the lotus position on top of a police patrol car outside the airport building, before running across the road toward a police officer.  

Passengers at Miami International Airport told CBSMiami  they were shocked by the incident and by the lack of response from passers-by. 
'I would never expect to see something like that. That would probably make me bust down and I would want to help,' said passenger Tay Credit.

'That's the only thing that did confuse me, was no one tried to help, or cover her up; women especially.'

Another passenger Pru Ingelfield said: 'It's a shock. In fact, you wouldn't believe what you're looking at. It looks as if it isn't real.' 

Airport police have confirmed that the female, who is not from Florida, was taken into custody for a mental evaluation. 

They said she had been incoherent and delusional when they approached her. 

The incident took place at Miami International Airport (pictured). Because the woman has gone for a psychological evaluation, it is unlikely criminal charges will be filed, officials said

'On Monday, Jan. 13, 2020, at approximately 11:40 pm, Miami-Dade Police Department, Airport District officers, were dispatched to a call of a naked female running through the Miami International Airport (MIA) baggage claim area,' said the Miami-Dade police statement. 

'The naked female was located at the MIA Central Plaza parking garage exit, behaving erratically. After conducting his investigation, the responding officer took her into custody and transported her to a nearby receiving facility for an involuntary examination, under the Florida Baker Act statute.'

Because the woman has gone for a psychological evaluation, it is unlikely any criminal charges will be filed, officials said.
