Trooper finds naked woman standing in road

HOLIDAY — A Florida Highway Patrol trooper was driving down a dark two-lane road late Monday night when, she reported, a woman who was completely nude appeared in the patrol car's headlights.

A man stood nearby on the side of Moog Road, trying to hand the woman clothes.

The trooper flipped on the emergency lights just as Bryanna Leeza-Marie Westbrook, 20, pulled on a pair of pajama pants and a sweater, the report states.

Her husband, Steven Thomas Mulholland — the man standing with her — offered what explanation he could:

He said his wife started out clothed when they walked to a 7-Eleven from their home at 3433 Thorny Ridge Drive. But she disrobed on the way back, apparently for no reason.

The trooper noticed Westbrook had two active warrants on charges of failure to redeliver leased property. The trooper arrested her with an added charge of indecent exposure and took her to Land O'Lakes jail, where she remained Tuesday in lieu of $10,513 bail.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
