NEW YORK, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- A model who was arrested while wearing nothing but body paint in New York's Times Square was released without charges and says she did nothing "truly wrong."

Zoe West, 21, stood nude at 44th Street and Broadway for 2 1/2 hours Tuesday while being painted by artist Andy Golub until police showed up and took the painted model into custody, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

West said she was released without charges after about one hour. Golub was not arrested.

"I don't believe there is truly anything wrong with what I did and with what he was doing," West told the New York Post.

Ron Kuby, Golub and West's lawyer, said his client should not have been arrested.

"New York State law prohibits public nudity, except if it's part of a play, performance, exhibition or show," Kuby said. "This particular sergeant who arrested Ms. West didn't get the memo -- or simply didn't care."
