A woman in Florida drove a golf cart through a police stand-off while completely naked.
When Jessica Smith drove through the scene, the police were in the middle of a stand-off with an armed teenager.
According to the affidavit, Smith smelt of alcohol and was completely nude.
A stand-off between Florida police and an armed suspect was interrupted by a naked woman driving a golf cart through the scene, reports say.
On Sunday night, police in Dunedin, Florida, were pursuing 18-year-old Myles Abbott after he fired a gun at people nearby, then fled and climbed onto a rooftop of a house, according to a press release.
Abbott pointed his firearm at police and refused to surrender, leading to a SWAT standoff that lasted six hours, police said.
While police were dealing with the armed teenager, Jessica Smith, 28, drove to the scene in a golf cart.
According to local news station WFLA-TV, there was no connection between Smith and Abbott.
According to the affidavit, seen by Fox 13, Smith had “a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person, and she was completely nude.”
Ignoring commands from Pinellas police to leave, Smith drove directly towards the house that Abbott was on top of.
“The defendant’s actions and inability to follow directions put multiple deputies at risk for potentially getting shot at,” investigators said in the affidavit.
Smith, originally from Boston, Massachusetts, was arrested and charged for resisting an officer without violence.
Abbott was also arrested and charged with crimes including aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and felon in possession of a firearm.
He also accidentally shot himself in the leg during the arrest, police said.
Two other teenagers were also taken into custody in connection with Abbott.
