Popped At Popeyes

NOVEMBER 9--For the second time in recent weeks, a Florida Woman has been arrested for pleasuring herself in public, this time outside a Popeyes at 10 AM, according to court records.

Vanessa Lee Jones, 38, was collared Saturday morning after a witness reported spotting her masturbating near a dumpster outside the chicken joint in St. Petersburg. Jones, seen at right, was fully nude at the time.

When police responded to the scene, officers “also witnessed the defendant masturbating in front of the dumpster completely naked.” Jones, investigators added, was “observed on security cameras masturbating while fully naked.”

Pictured at right, Jones was arrested for exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor. She is being held in the county jail in lieu of $150 bond.

In an arrest affidavit, St. Petersburg police noted that Jones showed no indications of drug or alcohol influence, and no indication of mental health issues. In police and court records, Jones is alternately listed as homeless and a resident of a rental property in New Port Richey, a city in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area.

Jones was arrested on September 30 after allegedly exposing herself and masturbating in front of a 7-Eleven in St. Petersburg. Jones was charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition since she allegedly “continuously rubbed her vagina” in view of a minor who was accompanied by a male relative who recorded the 11 AM incident.

Jones remained behind bars until October 28, when she was freed after prosecutors declined to pursue the felony case. The 7-Eleven is a couple of blocks from the Popeyes restaurant (seen below) where Jones was arrested Saturday morning.

According to court records, Jones’s rap sheet includes convictions for theft, possession of drug equipment, trespassing, and possession of synthetic marijuana. (1 page)
