Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
That's what happens when you pull them and then throw them into a canal. Naturally Masta was allegedly drunk, naked, shouting at strangers and throwing rocks.
The incident happened in Naples, Florida at about 8 p.m. last Saturday. When police arrived, they found Tina Belinda Masta, 46, sitting on a dock near her house wrapped in a blanket.
Of course when the police arrived, Masta exposed herself to them. (This is Legally Weird, after all.)
Masta had some kind of obsession going on with her teeth, as she "kept picking at her teeth and asked to use some pliers," the Naples Daily News reports. Masta was charged with disorderly intoxication, which is similar to a number of laws on the books such as public intoxication, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace. Under the law, it is illegal to be visibly drunk or under the influence of drugs in public. It is usually a misdemeanor crime.
One thing that Masta might have going for her: public intoxication must occur in public. The police reports indicate that she was sitting on a dock near her Naples, Florida home when the incident happened. If that dock was on private property, she might just succeed in getting the charges dropped.
Considering her behavior, Tina Belinda Masta was rather fortunate to avoid stumbling into a far more serious crime.
