Jennifer Russell – Woman Arrested Half Nude While Playing ‘Truth Or Dare” With Teens In A Public Park
Edgewater, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Jennifer Russell, a 43 year old Smyrna Beach woman has been arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious conduct after she was caught running through a park while playing "Truth or Dare" with a group of teens.
According to a police affidavit, an officer on patrol Wednesday at the Whistlestop Park in Edgewater, Florida noticed several teenagers running from a park bathroom to a nearby pavilion. Upon closer inspection, the officer noticed that an adult was running along with the group, with her shirt removed.
Police say the teens, aged 15 and 16 years old had dared the woman to expose her breasts. The woman had removed her shirt and was about to remove her bra, according to the teens, however they all ran when an officer appeared on scene.
When officers asked the Russell why she removed her shirt, she told them she "was getting hot". She also told police they "were standing around the side of the building in the dark, so it's not like the boys could see my breasts anyways," according to the report.
When officers asked about alcohol that was sitting on a nearby picnic table, the teens admitted Russell had provided it for them. Russell's purse was searched, which also turned up narcotics including methadone, muscle relaxers and anti anxiety medication.
Russell was arrested on charges of lewd and lascivious conduct in the presence of a minor, two counts of possession of narcotics, two counts of providing alcohol to minors and possession of a prescription drug without a prescription.
Police transported Russell to the Volusia County Branch Jail Wednesday afternoon and she was released on a $6,500 bail that evening.
We hope she'll pursue some resources for methadone clinics in Florida.
