400 Pound Woman Arrested For Wearing Birthday Suit On Bus Bench
CBS Miami ^ | June 21, 2012

Posted on 06/21/2012 7:31:27 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

Simple enough. Her M.O. is to pull something ridiculous to get arrested so she can get a bath, clean clothes, medical attention, a bed and three squares.

I cannot imagine any circumstance in which freedom is trumped by any creature comfort - at least not in the long term. For freedom to be of lesser value is truly a sign of dire circumstances or mental illness. Prayers for the woman.

"Patricia McCollum was arrested and charged with exposure of sexual organs in public..."

Quite honestly, at 400 pounds, I doubt they were really exposed to the public, regardless of how little clothing she was wearing.

A 400 pound women..what could she expose?? Whoever saw the “goods” had to lift several rolls of fat. Even if she was wearing shorts they would look like a thong.

The only crime (to progs) is that she was ‘fat’ and ‘raping the world of it’s ability for sustainable development’. /s

aside from Ted Kennedy, why don’t we see more pics of obese men?

Are only obese women the objects of ridicule? There are lots of obese men that could/should be put to shame.

Just saying - obesity hits both sexes, young and old. Equal opportunity bashing, ok?

That looks remarkably like a woman who used to go to the gym where I workout.

Pretty face and a body that looked dessicated.

I had several conversations with her boyfriend, who was constantly trying to feed her. She would just go make herself throw up afterward.

He tried taking her to group therapy and even paid for a pricey shrink. Nothing worked.

She died. Wasn’t even thirty.

Oh yeah - I almost forgot. She had a sister who was 5’4” and over 400#. The sister went to our church. I didn’t realize they were related until the funeral.

You could’ve knocked me over with a feather when I realized the connection.

Anorexia is ~NOT~ pretty when you see it in person.

Find us a similar story of a fat guy doing this and we’ll razz him too.

I wouldn’t complain much about double standards though. You guys can cry your way out of parking tickets, and you get free drink nights. Life ain’t fair.

Eating disorders are a strange affliction, seen only, as far as I know, in the developed world, and only in modern times. Sure, Dr Freud treated ‘hysteria’ and various neuroses, but these nervous disorders seem to change with the times, don’t they. And some of them, like for example the “recovered memory syndrome” are part of fashionable movements, for lack of a better term.

Even if she tried, the rolls would prevent any naughty bits from being exposed; OTOH, even the thought of her being naked is indecent...a nice legal quandary.
