A 28-year-old woman is now behind bars after she allegedly droved up to an active police SWAT standoff naked on a golf cart.

The incident occurred Sunday night in Dunedin, Florida.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says that they were originally called out to a home due to a report of an armed suspect shooting from the roof.

While authorities worked to contain the situation, a woman identified as Jessica Elisabeth Smith, drove up to the home and into the perimeter police set up.

Authorities say Smith, who was naked and driving a golf cart, ignored police orders to get off of the golf cart. Eventually authorities were able to take her into custody.

According to the report, Smith smelled strongly of alcohol.

After a nearly a six hour standoff , three teens involved in the shooting were also taken into custody.

Authorities reported that at least one of them required medical attention after shooting himself in the leg.
