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.
Thats why I was changing my clothes on the bus bench. I dont 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 doesnt seem to be McCollums 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.
That's one fat disabled person who obviously has the ability to survive on the streets but is unable to work.
Maybe she could change clothes at Laz’s pad?
If she’s homeless, where do they send the checks?
A post office box...

Who would want to look????
She has her own zip code.
I was hoping everyone would forget about “the rules,” but at least we didn’t get the “hole” (pun intended) pic. Yuk!!!
She would have a problem getting work.
Think about it.
There are people who survive on the street who are “off” mentally and would make terrible to impossible employees.
Her weight is also a problem when it comes to working, if it required physical activity such as a cleaning job...something along that line.
Going to slightly change the standard FR line:
This thread is PERFECT without pictures!!!
They were probably under the overhang anyway.
Thats why I was changing my clothes on the bus bench. I dont have anywhere else to stay but bus benches,
...perhaps if she cuts back on eating, say by 12 meals a day, she’ll have enough to get an apartment!
When she sits around the bus bench, she really sits around the bus bench.
Welcome to the fold.
Well, it could have been the “voo doo hot sauce mama”:
The one on the right is mine!
The people that go out naked in public are usually the people you don’t want to see naked.
You’re making me sympathize with Bloomberg’s decision. Stop!
How could they find them?
...arrested and charged with exposure of sexual organs in public...At 400 lbs -- short of a two-handed, flab-lift-and-seperate, how the heck could anything possibly be "exposed"? Just sayin'...
A very old method from my childhood: Cover her in flour and look for the wet spot.
Did I actually just post that? Wow.
