Half-naked woman arrested at State House event

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A woman who, for unknown reasons, stripped down to her bra and panties during a news conference at South Carolina's capital building was taken into custody Tuesday morning.

The bizarre incident occurred around 11:45 a.m. during a news conference on the north steps of the State House promoting Palmetto Pride's Zero Tolerance for Litter Campaign.

As one of the presenters was speaking, the woman appeared, dropped her clothes and purse and walked slowly toward those attending the event.

South Carolina Bureau of Protective Services officers assisted by other Midlands agencies escorted the woman away seconds after she approached.

Authorities identified the woman as 42-year-old Monica Dixon. She does not have a permanent address. 

Dixon was charged with public disorderly conduct and transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center where she is awaiting a bond hearing.

By the way, Zero Tolerance for Litter is a statewide law enforcement initiative bringing officers from municipalities to state agencies together to focus on the importance of litter control enforcement.
