Police arrest 400-pound woman they say was in buff on bus bench

A 400-pound woman was arrested Wednesday afternoon after being found by police sitting in the buff on a bus bench in Fort Lauderdale, police said

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Patricia McCollum, 52, was charged with exposure of sexual organs in public and was initially being held on a $100 bond. McCollum has a long record list of petty offenses, according to court documents.

McCollum, currently homeless, was found nude on a bus bench at 3900 N. Ocean Blvd and claims she was just trying to change her clothes, according to the arrest report filed in the case.

"That's why I was changing my clothes on the bus bench. I don't have anywhere else to stay but bus benches," McCollum said during a first appearance court hearing Thursday.
