Police in Tulsa say they arrested a man after he was discovered walking down I-244 — in a miniskirt.
Officers say they got a call about a half-naked man walking on East I-244 near Delaware Avenue at 7:20 p.m., Wednesday.
When the suspect, who was later identified as Ottie Webb, spotted police, he darted across the busy highway with cars flying highway speeds in a clear attempt to run and hide, police commented.
Officers state Webb crossed the highway a few more times before hiding behind a bush. Police ultimately detained him at the Delaware Avenue bridge.
Webb was arrested for jaywalking and obstruction and booked into the City of Tulsa Municipal jail.
British-designer, Mary Quant, is credited with pioneering the mini-skirt. “A miniskirt was a way of rebelling,” said Quant.
However, it was entertainer Josephine Baker who rung bells in the 1920s initially with a miniskirt made of bananas during performances of the “Folies Bergère” in Paris.
The first direct reference to the miniskirt stemmed from Wyoming newspaper The Billings Gazette characterizing the miniskirt as a controversial item in production in Mexico City. In the column, the miniskirt was described as halting eight inches above the knee.
