A woman who arrived at Louis Armstrong International Airport while wearing not a stitch of clothing was later arrested when she refused to leave the facility, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Mariel Vergara, 27, of Pueblo, Colo., was completely nude when she walked into the airport and made her way to the Spirit Airlines ticket counter on Friday night, April 3, authorities said.

A deputy dispatched to the scene noted that Vergara had already put on a dress by the time he arrived.

But she was still violating public decency laws because she had on no underwear, and the dress was too short to cover her genitals, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Airline officials told Vergara she wouldn’t be able to travel due to her attire — or lack thereof. She was asked to leave the airport, but Vergara refused, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Vergara ignored deputies’ orders to leave the airport and scuffled with them as she was being taken into custody.

She was arrested and booked Saturday with obscenity, resisting arrest, battery of a police officer, simple battery and remaining in a place after being forbidden.

Vergara was being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna Thursday on a $5,000 bond when she was rearrested and booked with battery of a corrections officer and resisting an officer by force or violence. No details were available about the new charges.
