HOT SPRINGS, Ark. -- A sheriff's deputy who is accused of going topless at a campground has been fired and charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.

Dawn Rene Roberson, 38, of Royal, was fired Wednesday after she turned herself in on the misdemeanor charges.

According to incident reports, a marine patrol deputy and a park ranger told a topless Roberson to cover up in separate encounters Sunday.

Later, authorities received a complaint that a woman without a top was in view of children.

One report said a grandmother complained that the topless woman became "loud and disorderly" after she told the woman to cover up. Another camper told authorities the woman became belligerent when confronted.

Yeesh! The ones you wouldn't want to see naked are always the first to strip.

Arkansas Sheriff's deputies are occasionally dysfunctional rednecks.

Who knew?

I agree with Patrick.

Interestingly, there are some good arguments to the effect that Roberson is not guilty of either misdemeanor she has been charged with. "Indecent exposure" in Arkanss requires a purpose to arouse or gratify sexual desire, and to all appearances she was simply hot. "Disorderly conduct" is limited to exposure of one's "private parts," a term which is undefined in the Arkansas Code but which case law seems to equate with the genitals.

If business goes on as usual, however, I imagine Roberson will get a substandard attorney who will talk her into copping a plea.
