$29,000 for going topless

And it’s not what you think:

“Jill Coccaro, 27, was arrested on a topless stroll two years ago, despite a 1992 state appeals court ruling that concluded women should have the same right as men to take off their shirts.”

The woman stated she was yanked by her hair into a police car and taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. She accepted a $29,000 settlement from the city of New York for wrongful arrest.

“I’ve always just felt that was something natural,” she said. “I’ve kind of always done it out of practicality.”
