Mosquitoes Prove No Match for a Naked Woman
The news conference at the fire station was supposed to be about mosquito control, but the buzz in the crowd was not caused by pesky bugs.
“Is that a naked lady over there or is there something wrong with my eyes?” asked Mayor George Dement, departing from prepared remarks Thursday after spotting a woman walking by wearing only a purple sweatband on her head.
Police said Patricia L. Toney, 25, had been released from city jail earlier Thursday after being booked for public drunkenness, and she was walking home when she decided to disrobe in the rain.
They persuaded her to wrap herself in the city-issued robe she was carrying and she was taken home.
