HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KHOU) – The naked woman who climbed on a big rig and stopped traffic on US-290 in Houston Monday will not face charges.
Deputies say the 25-year-old woman has been moved from a hospital to the Harris County Psychiatric Center.
They believe a mental breakdown led her to strip off her clothes and dance on the top of the truck during a two-hour standoff with police and firefighters.
Views from Air 11 showed the woman twerking and gyrating for passing vehicles.
Pearly Ward saw the whole thing unfold and called 911.
“That’s the most horrific thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ll be 68 in two days,” Ward said Monday.
The dancing woman’s mother recognized her on TV and also called authorities.
It was part of a service call that Cy-Fair volunteer firefighter Brian Shirley will never forget.
“You’re thinking on your feet the whole time,” Shirley said. “We wanted to get her down safely.”
Shirley said the woman believed the FBI and CIA were coming after her.
Firefighters and police officers used ladder trucks to try and coax the 25-year-old woman down, but she cursed at them and refused to budge. They finally jumped on the top of the big rig and wrestled her into the ladder bucket.
