MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A 400-pound woman decided to strip down to her birthday suit while she sat on a bus bench in Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday afternoon.

Patricia McCollum was arrested and charged with exposure of sexual organs in public and was initially held on a $100 bond, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The 52-year-old, who is currently homeless, was sitting buck naked on a bus bench at 3900 N. Ocean Blvd. She claims she was only trying to put on a different outfit.

“That’s why I was changing my clothes on the bus bench. I don’t have anywhere else to stay but bus benches,” McCollum said during a first appearance court hearing Thursday.

McCollum has a laundry list of petty offenses, according to documents.

This doesn’t seem to be McCollum’s first offense of this kind either, several officers in the past have observed and warned her about similar behavior.

The impromptu nudist, who uses a walker to stand, currently collects Social Security disability checks, according to her statements in court.
