OLIVER SPRINGS, Tenn. (AP) - Oliver Springs police say a woman they arrested was overserved, underdressed and had an attitude.

Crystal Jane Wombles remained in the Anderson County Jail on Thursday. A booking officer said the 35-year-old Wombles had made her initial court appearance, but it wasn't clear whether a public defender had yet been assigned to her case.

The Knoxville News Sentinel ( ) reported a police affidavit described Wombles as "extremely intoxicated" and wearing only a T-shirt when police arrived Monday. Officer Nathaniel Nelson's report stated neighbors said Wombles was "all naked" on a porch minutes before he arrived. Neighbors sent their kids inside and called police.

Police said Wombles refused to put on her clothes and tried to bite Nelson on the arm as officers tried to clothe her.
