Tiara Monique-Garness

Tiara Monique-Garness

Cover up those cheeks on South Carolina beaches or face criminal charges. Tiara Monique Garness, 22, learned this lesson while vacationing at Myrtle Beach over the Memorial Day weekend. The High Point, N.C. resident was arrested and charged with indecent exposure for wearing a thong bikini that exposed her buttocks.

Authorities allege Garness was warned that she would be detained if she didn’t don a cover-up, but she ignored police. She was arrested at 5 a.m. Friday and is being held on a $469 cash bond.

Several other trippers met the same fate. Latosha Faye Collins, 27; Tenisha Blair, 34; and Latoya Michen, 31 were all arrested for the same offense between 7:20 p.m. Friday and 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

Myrtle Beach’s ABC affiliate, KTRE, reports:

Latosha Faye Collins, 27-years-old from Dalton, GA was arrested at 7:20 p.m. at 199 8th Ave. North on Ocean Blvd. The police report states Collins was on the back of a purple motorcycle shaking her bare bottom in the air.

Collins was traveling with Eric Cunningham, 47-years-old, also from Dalton, GA. Cunningham received a misdemeanor racing engines unnecessarily, and driving without a license. The police report states he was racing his engine so Collins could shake herself on his motorcycle.

Tenisha Blair, 34-years-old, from Shelby, NC was also arrested at 199 8th Ave. N. Ocean Blvd in Myrtle Beach, around 9:45 p.m. Friday night. The police report states she was walking on a sidewalk wearing a black dress with nothing on underneath, exposing her bare bottom.

Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning, Latoya Michens, 31-years-old from Philadelphia, PA was arrested at 19th Ave. South Ocean Blvd. The police report states she was walking northbound on Ocean Blvd. exposing her bare bottom.

The City of Myrtle Beach Local Government forbids thong bikinis. The website states: “Thong bikini bathing suits and public display of certain body parts are illegal and can result in arrest.”

The formal law reads: Sec. 5-30 b. It shall be unlawful for any person to intentionally appear on any public beach, beach access, in the public waters, any other public property, or in view of the public in such a state of dress or undress so as to expose to the view of others specified anatomical areas.

  • I know it;s mean, but God know’s I would love to wake up one day with every last cracker on planet earth gone. They are some of the most miserable people walking around breathing, they aren’t happy unless they have drama or some disaster taking place.

      Maybe YOU should disappear from this planet, you racist worm. Btw, no one wants to see your naked disgusting ass! That’s why it’s a law to cover it.

      you might recall a cracker is fundamentally just a dried cookie;

      so presuming you woke the next morn and did away with all the vanilla wafers–let us ignore for the moment that no cookie is completely pure, not even you–could you really feel safe if you didn’t start on the Oreo cookies next?

      now how would you tell the Oreo cookies from, let’s say, the chocolate chips, who are also related to the vanilla wafers, btw…

      and remember, almost everybody loves chocolate chip cookies, probably you, too;

      oh, and what about ho-hos, Twinkies and fruitcakes that stick to their own kind, because you’d have to make the world safe for your cookies…

      and let’s not forget about those donuts, with those weird fillings and something clearly missing in the middle;

      and what possible worth would be cakes and pies, the latter actually having the nerve to try to mix a cookie shell with other fillings what clearly weren’t meant to be together;

      and lastly , there’s that cold ice cream which only seems to mix together even more flavours and then melt/run all over everything…

      my goodness, man, how will you ever get out of the kitchen to get anything else done?

    I think this law was made by some old, fat, ugly, church people who are insanely jealous that they dont look as good as these hot women in a thong; so they’re taking out their frustration and low self esteem on women who do. I notice most of the nay Sayers have female names. What’s wrong ladies? Feeling jealous that you don’t have a big black bubble-butt that a thong would make make look totally hot?
