REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Police arrested a Maryland woman after she was spotted walking topless through Rehoboth Beach.

On Saturday, police began getting calls about a woman walking around Wilmington Ave. and First Street without a top on. Officers found Jennie Lee Martin, 37, of Chevy Chase, near the Boardwalk.

Police say Martin was topless when officers contacted her. Police say she complied with an officer’s request to put her shirt on, but failed to provide police with identification.  Martin demanded that officers show her the law prohibiting her actions.

Further investigation revealed that before police arrived, a man noticed several families hiding their children’s view of Martin. Police say that man approached Martin and asked her to put her shirt on. According to police, Martin allegedly responded with profanity and spit on the man.  

When officers attempted to take Martin into custody, police say she refused to allow officer to place her in handcuffs.  Officers say they were forced to restrain Martin and forcefully place her into handcuffs. 

As a result of her arrest, Martin’s purse was searched and officers say they located marijuana and a broken pipe inside.

Officers reported smelling alcohol when they were interacting with Martin.

Martin was arrested for 1 count of first-degree indecent exposure, 1 count of resisting arrest, 1 count of possession of marijuana, and 1 count of disorderly conduct, which are all misdemeanor offenses.  Martin was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $1,500 secure bail.
