Nude Sunbathing at Popular Beach Ends in Woman's Arrest: Police

A 28-year-old Norwalk woman is accused of removing her bathing suit at Compo Beach in Westport.

Anna Lee Halderman was arrested on Saturday, in connection with a July 15 incident at the beach.

According to police, a woman called them with a complaint about an indecent exposure at Compo Beach.

The caller told police that Halderman had removed the top part of her bathing suit to tan. The caller said she confronted Halderman about removing her top and that Halderman became belligerent and removed the bottom half of her suit as well, according to police.

Police said the woman told them Halderman appeared intoxicated and complained that the entire incident took place in front of her child.

In a later interview, Halderman told officers she did not recall what she did at the beach that day but apologized for her behavior, according to police.

Halderman turned herself into police on Saturday and was charged with risk of injury to a minor and second-degree breach of peace.
