Erykah Badu charged in naked video shoot
Erykah Badu is facing a disorderly conduct charge in Dalls stemming from her Window Seat video shoot. In the video, Badu does a walking striptease in front of tourists and pedestrians throughout her March 13th video shoot.
Badu's video shoot took place in the downtown Dallas' Dealey Plaza. The shoot ended with a nude Badu acting out a performance of receiving a fatal gunshot in the spot where the late President John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.
The decision to bestow the disorderly conduct charge upon Badu occurred after a witness gave a sworn statement to the police late last week. The disorderly conduct charge is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine up to $500.
What led to her being charged is the fact that she disrobed in a public place without regard to individuals and small children (as seen in photo at right).
Badu has the option to fight the charge or pay the fine. She'll receive the official citation via snail mail.
As for one of the main reasons why it took so long for the charge to be placed on Badu, apparently witnesses were reluctant to come forth. Once a witness came forward last Thursday with a sworn statement, charges were filed.
