Topless Woman Wins $50K Settlement After Bogus Arrest

A harmless game of topless Frisbee turned into a lesson in constitutional law for one very informed woman.

A woman won a $50,000 settlement with the city of Loveland, Colorado, after a police officer tried to bust her for playing frisbee without a shirt on.

The woman, a 20-year-old community college student, ultimately prevailed by citing a recent 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, which allows for a woman to be topless anywhere a man can be topless.

It’s as good a reason as any for staying abreast of current events.

“If you fight, chances are you are going to make some kind of difference,” she said in an interview with CBS Denver.

She was playing Frisbee in her fiancé’s front yard when she started overheating. Her hubby-to-be had already taken his shirt off, and she decided to join him, removing hers.

“I was like, ‘Oh it’s hot, he’s shirtless, why not go for it?’” she said.
