Erykah Badu’s naked stroll through downtown Dallas, Texas, for a music video has earned her a disorderly conduct citation.
The singer shed her clothes as she walked through Dealey Plaza until she was nude and then fell near where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Badu said the video was “shot guerrilla style,” without a crew and in one take March 17.
A Dallas Police spokeswoman said earlier in the week that they wanted to press charges against Badu because children were present, but no one had called police or filed a complaint that day.
Police now have their witness.
“One witness did come forward yesterday, thus leading to the charges filed today,” a statement from Dallas Police said Friday.
A citation of misdemeanor disorderly conduct has been mailed to Badu, who is a Dallas resident, police said.
“After much discussion, it has been determined that this charge best fits her conduct when she disrobed in a public place without disregard [sic] to other individuals and children who were in close proximity,” the police statement said. If convicted, Badu could be fined $500, police said.
