In this week’s WTF News, a Colorado woman is facing a host of charges after rolling into the New Orleans airport completely nude. Now, we understand that quarantine has us all getting a little comfortable when it comes to clothes these days, but this is taking the phrase ‘come as you are’ to a new level.

According to reports, 27-year old Mariel Vergara walked into Louis Armstrong International Airport and approached the Spirit Airlines ticket counter completely nude on April 3. Authorities were soon called and by the time they arrived the woman had put on a very short dress to “cover up.”

Airport personnel asked Vergara to leave the premises because she would not be permitted to fly since her dress didn’t cover her genitals and she did not have on underwear. Vergara refused to leave and allegedly began scuffling with authorities as they took her into custody.

There has been no word as to why the woman entered the airport the way that she did. She was arrested and booked on charges of obscenity, resisting arrest, battery of a police officer, simple battery and remaining in a place after being forbidden.
