'Floribama Shore' star Nilsa arrested during St. Petersburg First Friday after allegedly flashing crowd

Floribama Shore cast member Nilsa Prowant was arrested early Saturday morning in St. Petersburg after allegedly flashing a crowd and then kicking out a car window.

The reality TV star, 25, whose real name is Nilsa Anderson, was standing on a balcony at the downtown bar @260 First at around 1:30 a.m. when St. Petersburg Police say she called down to a crowd standing along First Avenue N during the city's monthly First Friday celebration, and showed them her breasts — in view of several officers.

According to a police report, officers were going to release Anderson and were escorting her to a car when she became "belligerent and erratic." After being told to leave, and getting into the back seat of the car, Anderson began kicking the back driver's side window, eventually shattering it and knocking broken glass into the street, police said.

Anderson, who police said appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, was then arrested on the misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and exposure of sexual organs, and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. She was released on bail several hours later.

Anderson has been in the Tampa Bay area as part of filming for the third season of MTV's Floribama Shore, the hit reality series that previously filmed in Panama City.

The "shore house," where the cast lives during the season is located in St. Pete Beach, and the production has been spotted filming along St. Petersburg's Central Avenue.
