Springfield, MO – Samantha J. Edwards stripped off all her clothes and ran through a community park while high on bath salts. The nude run through Jordan Valley Ice Park was the second for the Springfield woman. Witnesses say that after jumping on top of a maintenance building, the young woman threw her bra onto a walking path and displaced her lady parts to the shock, and possibly enjoyment, of passersby.
Police officers were called the scene after several witnesses called 911 to report the naked shenanigans. According to the arrest report, Samantha J. Edwards spent a half an hour leaning over a balcony, exposing her genitals to anyone who happened along, the Daily Mail reports. In addition to parading around in her birthday suit, the alleged bath salts user also is also accused of ripping the covers off of several electrical boxes and stealing two fire extinguishers from the maintenance building.
The supposed drug-induced streaking was not the first time Edwards has been in trouble with the law, according to the Springfield News-Leader. Her past arrests include credit card fraud. She has been charged with second degree sexual misconduct and second degree property damage misdemeanors. A felony charge for fraudulent use of a debit or credit device is still pending. After the arrest for synthetic drug use, Edwards was placed in a Greene County Jail jumpsuit.
Running around naked while under the influence of bath salts is apparently not uncommon. Earlier this summer a Miami man exposed himself to a preschool age girl while high on the synthetic substance. Pamela McCarthy, of New York, also stripped off all her clothes and then punched her young child while cranked up on the man-made drug. Police officers had to use a Taser gun to control McCarthy, who later died of cardiac arrest.
