INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A naked woman got locked up after investigators said she was behind the wheel of a Mercedes while under the influence, an affidavit states.

The case against Cecilia Faure, 52, began about 12:23 a.m. Jan. 3 as an Indian River County sheriff’s deputy heard screams from a Vero Beach home.

The deputy went to the residence in the 2100 block of 43rd Avenue and heard a vehicle turn on.

The garage door opened, and the deputy saw reverse lights activate on a white Mercedes.

A “completely naked female” was in the driver seat, the affidavit states.

It’s unclear whether she wore a seatbelt.

Identified as Faure, the naked lady smelled of booze, an affidavit states. An alcohol bottle was near the driver side door.

The home is Faure’s listed address. Faure asked whether she could leave, and was told no.

The affidavit didn’t specify where Faure evidently was going naked after midnight.

Investigators said Faure didn’t comply with instructions. She was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest without violence, and is accused of trying to spit on a corporal.

At the jail, Faure took field sobriety exercises and was arrested on a DUI charge.
