Nude Model Arrested in Times Square

Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: The NY Daily news reports that Zoe West, a 21-year-old model who was being painted by artist Andy Golub, was hauled by cops to a midtown precinct house once she bared her naked, colorful body to a shocked matinee crowd at the pedestrian plaza at 44th St. and Broadway. "It was wild," said West, who shed an olive onesie and black G-string to be painted in public for 2-1/2 hours. "I walked into the precinct, and there were about six cops standing behind the counter. Everyone went, 'Whoa! What's this?'" After an hour in unclothed custody, West was released without charges. On her Model Mayhem profile, West states: "I love to be part of any eccentric, Vintage or strange project; for that is when I believe I'm at my best." Golub, who has pulled off similar stunts before around Manhattan and Brooklyn, was not arrested. "New York State Law prohibits public nudity, except if it's part of a play, performance, exhibition or show," said Ron Kuby, Golub and West's lawyer. "This particular sergeant who arrested Ms. West didn't get the memo - or simply didn't care." "I don't believe there is truly anything wrong with what I did and with what he was doing," West toldThe Post last night after she was released. So what do you think? Is public nudity okay as long as it's artistic? Or should there be a ban on this sort of thing? Leave a comment below and let us know.
