Nude woman caught touching herself outside chicken shop found ‘committing same offence’

A woman in the United States who was arrested for public masturbation just a few weeks ago has been arrested again for the same offence.

Vanessa Lee Jones was completely naked when she was seen thoroughly enjoying herself by passers-by outside a chicken shop in St Petersburg, Florida.

According to the St Petersburg police arrest paperwork, Jones, 38, showed no sign of being drunk or under the influence of drugs, and there was no evidence of mental health issues.

Nevertheless, she was observed outside Popeye’s Fried Chicken at 10am entirely naked and touching herself.

Arresting officers “also witnessed the defendant masturbating in front of the dumpster completely naked,” and later examination of the CCTV footage from Popeye’s meant that Jones was “observed on security cameras masturbating while fully naked” there as well, reports The Smoking Gun.

Jones was previously arrested on September 30 for masturbating outside a 7-11 convenience store a short distance away from where today’s offence took place.

On that occasion, she was allegedly spotted at about 11am “continuously rubbing her vagina” outside a supermarket in front of a child.

Jones, who was said to be “smirking” at the time of that first incident, was reportedly observed by the child’s uncle, who “video recorded the incident” and showed the evidence to the arresting officers.

She remained behind bars until October 28, when she was freed after prosecutors declined to pursue the “lewd and lascivious exhibition” case.

Jones was arrested for exposure of sexual organs, which is a misdemeanour crime. She is being held in the county jail in lieu of $150 (£114) bond.

US law states anyone 18 or older who commits a lewd or lascivious exhibition commits a second-degree felony which is punishable by 15 years in prison and a $10,000 (£7,688) fine.
