Is This Too Revealing? Louisiana Woman Ticketed Over Her Outfit
If You Stay Too Long On TikTok You'll Find Videos That Make You Shake Your Head.
I stumbled upon TikTok User @kazzi112 whose real name is Casey. She claims that while she was enjoying a music festival with her family she was hit with a ticket.
The Citation Was for Indecent Exposure.
Casey claims that she covered the basics, or bits as she calls them. “All of my bits are covered. Are you kidding me? At a family event where there’s alcohol being literally handed out for free" Casey claims that she lives less than a mile down the road from where the music festival was and that she would have been more than happy to go home and change, but instead, the three female cops with the Winnfield Police Department just gave her the ticket.
So Far This Video Has Over 8 Million Views and 1.8 Million Likes.
Casey is wearing denim shorts with a belt and a black ribbed crop top with short sleeves. Personally, I am used to seeing outfits like this all over Shreveport-Bossier, maybe Winnfield just does it a little differently. Check out the TikTok video below.

Winnfield Police Department Responded to The Social Media Post.
The police department took to their Facebook page and said: "Winnfield’s 6th Annual Dugdemona Festival held on Main Street was an amazing success. However, recent posts to social media have had a negative impact on the service of our police officers during this family fun-filled festival. An unnamed citizen was cited for a city ordinance and has since taken to a popular social media site, blasting police officers. However, 3 female officers responded to various complaints about the person’s attire and the person of interest was issued a citation under the city ordinance. The referenced city ordinance is 14-76, passed unanimously by then city council members on 6-14-2011 and is cited as follows: 'It shall be unlawful for any person to wear pants, trousers, shorts, skirts, dresses, or skorts in any public place or places open to the public which either intentionally exposes undergarments or intentionally exposes any portion of the pubic hair, cleft of buttocks, or genitals.” Fines range from $25.00 for a first offense to a maximum of $300, and the person may be ordered to perform up to 40 hours of community service. The citizen was given a court date in the Winnfield City Court, which is the proper venue to dispute any allegation. A citation, in lieu of arrest, is an allegation of an infraction, not an assumption of guilt.
'We, as public servants, will not engage in a social media war with any one or any organization, as it is improper and brings discredit upon this department. We also cannot comment on details of any case under investigation or pending court action,' stated a department spokesperson."
Do You Think the Outfit Was Too Revealing?
Does this woman deserve a $300 fine?
