Authorities in Columbia, South Carolina were in for a surprising arrest when 42-year-old Monica Dixon stripped down to her underwear during a news conference being held on the State House steps.
She allegedly "dropped her clothes and purse and walked slowly toward those attending the event," before being intercepted by authorities.

Even though the police probably weren't laughing, at least the presenter at the podium conducting the news conference had a sense of humor about the whole thing: "[Y]ou've got littering of all shapes and sizes, I can tell you right now." The awkward moment — from her strip to the arrest — was caught on camera.
