Police: Woman naked from waist down jailed

NEWPORT, Ore. - A woman naked from the waist down found running across a field with two dogs on leash refused to get dressed and tried to kick at the windows of a patrol car as police took her to jail, the Newport Police Department said.

The investigation started shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday. Police received multiple reports of a woman screaming in a field on 13th Street.

When police arrived on scene, they encountered a woman who was naked from the waist down running across the field with two dogs on leash.

The woman, identified as Carissa Marie Laprall, 19, told police she was homeless and traveling through the area. Police suspected Laprall was intoxicated but that she was not injured or being menaced by anyone.

Laprall refused to dress herself, police said, even after her pants were found in the field.

Police said Laprall continued to yell obscenities at officers and continued to refuse to dress herself, so police arrested her for Disorderly Conduct II.

After being placed in handcuffs, police said she resisted officers’ efforts to walk her to a patrol car.

And while on the way to the jail, Laprall intentionally hit her head against the interior of the car and kicked at the windows of the patrol car, police said.

Laprall faces charges of Disorderly Conduct II, and Resisting Arrest. She was also cited for Minor in Possession. Her bail for the criminal charges was set at $22,500.

The two dogs were taken to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.
