A North Carolina woman found undressing in the parking lot of Tega Cay’s Walmart was arrested on Friday after police found a plastic baggie of white powder in her jacket that she admitted was methamphetamine, authorities say.

At about 9:30 a.m., police were sent to the Walmart on Stonecrest Bouelvard after receiving calls about a possibly intoxicated woman sitting in a white Honda Accord removing her clothes, according to a report from the Tega Cay Police Department.

Police found the woman, identified as Christine Leigh Campbell, 25, of Monroe, N.C., sitting in the driver’s seat removing her shirt, underwear and pants.

Campbell told the officer that she was undressing so she could “pop a cyst on her leg,” the report states. After confirming her identity, the officer placed a very-fidgety Campbell under arrest, charging her with public disorderly conduct because she undressed in public when she could have used Walmart’s restroom. While searching her, another officer found a baggie filled with white powder in one of her jacket pockets. When the officer asked Campbell what was inside the baggie, she told him it was meth.

Police additionally charged Campbell with possession of less than 1 gram of methamphetamine and cited for possession of drug paraphernalia after authorities found two glass pipes inside of an eyeglass case in her car, the report states. She was taken to the York County Detention Center and later released on a more than $10,000 bond.
