Erykah Badu charged with disorderly conduct over nude video shoot
London, Apr 4 (ANI): Cops have charged US neo-soul singer Erykah Badu with disorderly conduct for stripping naked on a street among pedestrians while filming her latest music video.
She also pretended to be shot in the head in the same Dallas plaza where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, reports The BBC.
Badu was charged after a witness offered a sworn statement to police, Sergeant Warren Mitchell said.
The singer performed a walking striptease during the shoot in Dealey Plaza on 13 March for her video for the song Window Seat.
Sgt Mitchell added that the police department has had "people calling from all across the country to express their concern".
"Having a fact witness that was there, is what let us file the charges," he said.
"After much discussion, we feel that these charges best fit her conduct. She disrobed in a public place without regard to individuals and small children who were close by."
Mitchell said Badu can either fight the charge or pay the fine. (ANI)
