Authorities said Maura Fussell was arrested late on Saturday night after she tried to visit her husband in jail. She has been charged with indecent exposure and being drunk in public

Police say the woman arrived at the Arlington County jail shortly before 11 p.m. on March 15 demanding to see her husband who was arrested in Clarendon earlier in the day while they were taking part in The Shamrock Crawl, a St. Patrick's Day event.

The woman was given several opportunities to put her clothes back on, leave the magistrate’s office and go home in a cab. But she refused to do so. Therefore, she was charged and spent the night in the county jail until she sobered up the following morning.

According to reports, she never did get to see her husband who was not named in the news.
