Woman arrested after allegedly flashing casino guests

Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman Sunday morning after she was kicked out of Horizon Casino Resort for allegedly flashing her breasts at casino guests.

The 46-year-old South Lake Tahoe woman was arrested about 1:15 a.m. on suspicion of possessing a hypodermic needle, possession of marijuana and resisting police, according to a deputy’s report.

A deputy witnessed the woman acting strangely, taking extra-long strides and leaning over a fence on her stomach, before she walked into the casino, according to the report. After several minutes inside the casino, the deputy saw security guards escorting the woman out of Horizon. One of the security guards told the deputy she was being kicked out of the casino for acting strangely and flashing guests, according to the report.

The deputy noticed the woman had very large pupils consistent with stimulant use and was making rapid jerky movements. Because of the erratic behavior the deputy placed the woman in handcuffs.

During questioning of the woman, deputies allegedly found a hypodermic needle in a glove she had taken off to retrieve identification. A small amount of marijuana was also found in the glove after the woman was taken to Douglas County’s Stateline jail.

In addition to the possession allegations, the woman was also arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest because she continuously tried to pull away from deputies during the encounter, according to the report.

She told deputies that she did not know where the hypodermic needle came from before requesting an attorney, according to the report.
