LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman was arrested after police say she exposed herself in public.

Tanaishia Hinkle, 30, was arrested Sunday on East Broadway.

The official arrest report says an officer was on patrol when Hinkle was standing at the corner of Jackson and East Broadway. Police say Hinkle was "in front of children and customers of a local restaurant," when she allegedly pulled down her pants and exposed herself.

Authorities say an officer tried to stop Hinkle when she fled and ran inside a restaurant. Officials say she then ran across the street to a bus stop where she was arrested. 

Police say that as Hinkle was being taken to Metro Corrections, she threatened to punch an officer in the face. Police also say she spit on an officer once she was taken out of a vehicle.

Hinkle is charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and terroristic threatening.
