Topless woman arrested after allegedly throwing cigarettes at Nashville protesters

She should have butted out of this one.

A 54-year-old topless woman was arrested in Nashville for allegedly throwing cigarettes at protesters in the city’s downtown Wednesday afternoon, a local ABC affiliate reported.

The woman has been charged with indecent exposure after police found her shouting profanities several blocks from the Tennessee State Capitol building.

She was booked at the Metro jail and held on a $1,000 bond.

It was not immediately clear what demonstrations the woman was targeting. Though protesters have for months camped outside of the Capitol building in protest against police brutality over the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

The protesters have called for the defunding of police — but the state Legislature has instead opted to criminalize the demonstrations.

On Wednesday, the state’s lawmakers passed a controversial bill targeting the protesters, making it a felony to camp on state property, including the Capitol grounds.
