An Australian woman has been ordered to appear in court after flashing her breasts at Google Street View.
Karen Davis lifted her top as a vehicle taking photos for the Google Street View service went past about two months ago. While the image has indeed made it to the live service, Davis’s exposed breasts have been pixelated out.
The local police were even less impressed with Davis’s streetside expose’, reporting her for disorderly behaviour.
“The woman’s actions were the same as someone flashing their genitals and the expectation is that we take action,” they said in a statement.
“It isn’t appropriate for anyone to expose themselves… Our community should be able to expect decency.”
The 38-year-old mother from Port Pirie remains is unapologetic though, saying she wanted to be a Street View star and that it will be difficult to keep a straight face in court.
“I got to tick something else off my bucket list. I met Sam Newman and now I am on Google Maps,” Davis told Adelaide news website The Advertiser.
“There was no child harmed in the making, my children don’t have to go to therapy because of it, I didn’t give any old man a heart attack — that I’m aware of.
“I spoke to my 19-year old son before and he thinks it’s funny as, my children don’t have a problem with it at all.
“I’m going to try and go to court with a straight face and try not to laugh – I think it is a bit hilarious because it is so low scale in the criminal world.”
Davis said she is “bemused” that the police need to take the action against her when there are more pressing issues for them to attend to.
“It amuses me because what about the drug dealers of the town, the murders that have happened in this town, shouldn’t you be focusing on that?,” she said.
After the story initially broke, Davis says people in her local community have been putting her down.
“They are narrow-minded people who are not happy with their own bodies,” she told the Daily Mail.
On a brighter note though, she says there is a friend in Britain who will enjoy the image.
“If he looks on there he will smile,” she said.
