Armed, Naked Woman Arrested After Vacaville Motel Standoff

VACAVILLE (CBS/AP) — Police say a woman was arrested at a Vacaville motel after walking naked into the lobby and threatening the front desk clerk with a gun.

The incident took place early Sunday morning at a Super 8 motel.

According to police, 32-year-old Patricia Wright entered the lobby and waved a .38-caliber semiautomatic handgun at the clerk, who called 911. Wright was staying at the motel with a male companion and reportedly told the clerk that she was afraid after ingesting marijuana and prescription medications.

After a 20-minute standoff with officers, the clerk was able to calm Wright and convince her to surrender.

Police say no other motel guests were affected by the standoff.

Wright later told officers that she also had used the drug Ecstasy.

She was booked into Solano County Jail on multiple weapons charges.

    The clerk was lucky she didn’t claim to be the motel bug investigator. Of course being butt naked where can she hide her badge???

    I rate this a 7.0 on a ‘dimwit iq” scale. For the naked idiot who should be shamed for behaving like Eve when she took a bite out of a forbidden fruit.
