I was at the beach at lake Temescal in Oakland, California, with my 3 children peacefully enjoying myself. 3 policemen showed up and gave me a citation for nudity even though I was wearing 2 sweaters and a bikini bottom (not a thong). They justified their actions with East Bay Parks regulations that say that you are not allowed to show buttocks at the beach. I was showing buttocks and was in violation according to their rules.
Ordinance 38/Section 405.
NUDITY. No person shall appear, swim, bathe, sunbathe, walk or be in any of the parks, lands, beaches, waters or any place owned, managed, controlled or otherwise under the jurisdiction of the East Bay Regional Park District, in such a manner that the genitals, vulva, pubis, symphysis, pubic hair, buttocks, and cleft, perineum, anus, anal region, or pubic hair region of any person, or any portion of the breast at or below the upper edge of the areola thereof of any female person, is exposed to public view or is not covered by an opaque covering. This subdivision shall not apply to children under the age of 5 years.
This citation was a result of sexual harassment and retaliation by one of the park rangers. Ranger Vernon Jones had previously asked me out and was turned down and 2 days prior to the incident I filed a complaint about him driving too fast in his personal vehicle down a pedestrian path. He called the police on me in retaliation. The policemen kept insisting that it was a member of the public and not a ranger who called them.
A couple weeks later I was given another citation for swimming while the beach was officially closed even though none of the police saw me swim. It was another ranger Cliff Rocha - agianst whom I had also complained in the past - who called the police and convinced them to give me a ticket. Officer Torres insisted on giving me a citation against the will of the other police officers who were present. Officer Torres said the ranger would sign the citation. This citation was so illegal that 5 days later I received a letter from the Alameda County DA saying that my citation was not going to be filed and that there was no need to go to court nor pay the fine.
I made a video about the incident and uploaded it here.
I host a naked TV show where I interview people in the nude. I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to make a nude interview about this incident. I did an interview with one of the women who go to lake Temescal to swim, Cara Judea Alhadeff. This interview is currently airing on Public Access channels in SanFrancisco and Berkeley, California, and it is posted on line at www.MyNakedTruth.TV
