Topless Woman Leads Ohio Cops on 128-mph Chase

High-speed car chases are par for the course these days. But topless car chases? They are certainly more rare.

Enter Erin Holdsworth, 28, who treated police in Bainbridge, Ohio to such a show earlier this month. After leading police on an early-morning, 128-mph car chase, police ordered her out of her car.

She was clad only in a see-through tube top, a thong, and a pair of wedge heels.

And there's police dash cam video to prove it.

Bainbridge police originally clocked Erin Holdsworth driving at 110 mph, reports USA Today. She ignored signals to pull over, resulting in a miles-long chase. It eventually ended when "stop sticks" blew out her left tires.

Once Holdsworth emerged from the vehicle on unsteady feet, she took a moment to do a little twirl. And to show off her assets.

Prosecutors have since charged her with drunk driving, refusing a sobriety test, driving with a suspended license, speeding, and reckless driving, reports Fox 8 Cleveland.

There's also a charge for criminal damage, which is probably related to the violent hissy fit she threw once in the back of the cruiser. She put those wedge heels to use by kicking the vehicle's windows.

As you may notice, the topless car chase did not result in charges of public nudity. This is because Erin Holdsworth was technically not in public. It's generally not illegal to drive naked if members of the public do not see you. Officers who order you out of your vehicle usually don't count.
