Pompano Beach, FL – Maribel Gomez, 35, was arrested on Monday morning for showing her breasts to children who were waiting for a school bus.
According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office probable cause affidavit, a deputy answered a call about 8:15 a.m. on Monday regarding a woman undressing in front of school children waiting for a bus in the city.
According to the document, a 10-year-old witness told the deputy he saw Gomez “with her breasts fully exposed,” and heard her ask, “Are you ready?”
Gomez was arrested at the scene, initially charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition. At her court appearance on Tuesday, however, Judge John “Jay” Hurley downgraded the charge against Gomez. “We’ve agreed that your alleged behavior does not fit into that statute,” he said. “We agreed that if anything, it’s disorderly conduct.”
Hurley revoked Gomez’s bond because of a arrest in April on cocaine possession. Hurley also ordered that Gomez undergo a mental health evaluation.Tags: Crime, disorderly conduct, Florida, Indecent Exposure, Maribel Gomez, mental illness
