"I'm Not Nude, I'm Topless", Duluth Woman Takes On Cops At Local Beach

A Duluth woman is raising questions regarding the ambiguous language used to define “indecent exposure” in Minnesota laws. This, after an individual called the police on the woman for being topless at Park Point beach and refusing to cover up.

Michelle Bennett enjoys the beach as much as the next person, but unlike most women you’ll see, she enjoys it topless.

She’s been going topless at Park Point beach for two years and never had problems until last month.

“A woman approached me after about twenty minutes of laying in the sun asking be to put a top on, saying I was making her children uncomfortable,” Bennett said.

Bennett declined to put a top on, so the woman called police.

Bennett was later approached by a Duluth officer who didn’t know if he could arrest her.

“He heard that someone has been refusing to put a top on and that it wasn’t a nude beach. I pointed out to him that I wasn’t nude, I was topless,” Bennett said.

Bennett referred the officer to the Minnesota law that says a person can’t publicly expose their private parts, but that same law doesn’t say if a woman’s breasts fall under that category.
