A woman with two young children at a lake in Iowa resisted police after she went skinny-dipping and refused to come out of the water, according to a criminal complaint.
Police said Brandee Steffes, 36, was at Lake Manawa Monday evening, and appeared to be intoxicated while in the presence of two children. She also kept entering the water even after being told to stop.
Police moved in to arrest her, but Steffes fled into the water and removed her clothes. A witness said Steffes had to be wrestled to shore, according to KETV. Once on shore, she cursed at the officers, and spit and kicked at them.
The incident was captured on an officer’s body camera.
The children with Steffes were placed in protective custody and Steffes was taken to jail.
