Deputies arrest Arab woman found skinny-dipping in river

Sheriff's deputies arrested an 18-year-old Arab woman after finding her naked and intoxicated in the Tennessee River on Saturday, Chief Deputy Mike Corley said.

Corley said deputies originally went to the area along River Loop Road because a caller asked them to check on the woman's welfare.

"She refused to comply with the officers' instructions for her to come to the shore. She was about waist deep. Through the conversation, they determined that she may have been under the influence," Corley said.

After persuading her to move ashore, deputies charged the woman with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and indecent exposure, Corley said.
