Erykah Badu will be charged with disorderly conduct over her nude video shoot that took place in the middle of Dallas … law enforcement sources tell TMZ. Our sources say the announcement will be made at a news conference held by the Dallas Police Department momentarily. Erykah took her clothes off in the middle of Dealey Plaza — the place where JFK was assassinated in 1963 — for a music video shoot. A Texas woman filed an indecency complaint with the PD. [Source]
Update: Lt. Andy Harvey, a police spokesman said of the case: “The most that will come out of this from a criminal standpoint is a disorderly conduct [charge], if that.” The charge, a misdemeanor, would probably result in a citation for Badu. [Source]
Update: Police say they have charged Badu with disorderly conduct and will mail her a citation. Badu faces up to a $500 fine. [Source]
This is beyond dumb. Beyond. Well, at least the penalty isn’t too severe – still ridiculous though. But hey, on the upside, when has Erykah Badu’s name, music or video been so widely spread before this? Spreading art.
Peace, Love & Erykah Badu
