A female artist was arrested on a charge of exhibition of genitals in a public place after stripping naked in public and taking selfies with passersby for free, police in France said.
Paris police said that they have arrested 32-year-old Milo Moire, after being accused of standing in front of the Eiffel Tower and taking nude selfies with passersby.
The artist was told to get dressed, and when she refused, she was arrested. She spent the night in a police cell. If convicted, Moire faces up to one year in prison and a fine of 15,000 euros ($16,882).
Despite getting into trouble, Moire appeared at the Art Basel fair during the second day of VIP previews, posing nude with smiling locals.
After a few men posed with her, she asked the crowd not be shy and pose with her. Moire uploaded the nude selfies to her Instagram account, where they went viral.
