Fort Lauderdale police said Patricia McCollum, 52, was spotted by officers sitting nude on the bus bench Wednesday and was arrested on a charge of exposure of sexual organs in public, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.
McCollum said during a court appearance Thursday she is currently homeless and was attempting to change her clothes.
"That's why I was changing my clothes on the bus bench. I don't have anywhere else to stay but bus benches," McCollum said.
Police said McCollum has been warned by officers in the past about similar incidents.
McCollum was ordered held on $100 bond.
