Police Field Complaint About Well Endowed Snow Woman

March 05, 2003  | 

Crystal Lynn, of Kent, Ohio, decided to build a snow woman in her front yard, complete with two blobs of snow for the breasts. But a neighbor phoned in a complaint for what he called an indecent snow figure.

A police officer from the Kent (Ohio) Police Department arrived at Lynn's residence as she was finishing her creation.

"He said I should cut off her breasts, but I said no woman wants that," Lynn, 35, said.

She didn't want to knock the snow woman down either. And the figure was too busty to be covered by a shirt. So Lynn draped a ruffled maroon tablecloth around her shoulders.

"She looked really good, like she was getting ready to go to a party," she said.

Goodlet said the officer didn't demand that Lynn alter her artwork, but she left the conversation thinking she would be arrested for disorderly conduct if she didn't comply. When Lynn called the police department after the officer left and realized no charges were being brought against her, she took the tablecloth off of her snow woman. "I didn't think there was anything inappropriate about it," said Lynn. "I just wanted to play in the snow."
