"I got a f*****g ticket for indecent exposure in Winnfield, Louisiana," Casey shared in a TikTok video from June, that has now been viewed 2.7 million times.
She twirled around to show off her simple outfit – a black crop top that ties in the back, paired with some distressed denim shorts.
"All of my bits are covered," she stressed.
She continued: "At a family event, where there's alcohol being literally handed out for free. Three female cops came up to me and gave me a f*****g ticket.Read more on The SunMAKING IT CLEAR I'm a cleaning pro – there’s a surprising solution to cloudy shower doorsSTYLES IN SECONDS I’m a hair stylist - five easy & school-suitable styles for your daughter
"I live a mile down the road. They literally could have just been like 'hey ma'am, could you put some clothes on?'
"And I would've been like 'cool, I'll be right back.' But no, they stood there and gave me a f*****g ticket for indecent exposure. Are you kidding me?"
In a separate video, she revealed more details of what happened that day.
Apparently, she was at a festival on an extremely hot day, sitting on the curb with her family.Most read in LifestyleWHOSE BOOZE?

She had her ex-husband, her husband, and her two children with her.
"We're just sitting there and enjoying the band when I look over and I see three female cops walking in my direction," she shared.
"Didn't think anything of it. I wasn't doing anything wrong."
At this point, the cops stopped her, saying they wanted to talk to her. Complying, she got up and spoke with them.
One of them told her she was going to give her a citation. When Casey asked why the cop just gestured at her and said "look at you."
The cop clarified that the citation was for indecent exposure.
Taken aback, Casey suggested that she could just go home and change, but the cop did not agree to it.
Casey started asking questions: "Why am I being cited? All my bits are covered. Every part of me is covered. I've seen teenagers walking around in less just five minutes ago, in less than what I'm in."
And, when her husband and ex-husband came to her defense, the female cops apparently told them to stay out of it.
At this point, Casey was embarrassed.
She explained: "Anybody who actually knows me knows that I have never worn anything like that in public, literally ever. I'm usually the one that covers everything.2At the time of the incident, she had on a crop top and jean shortsCredit: TikTok
"But it was hot, I was like you know what, I feel nice in this, so I decided to wear it. The first day I wear something revealing, I get cited for it."
She further explained that in Louisiana, indecent exposure is actually a felony offense.
Feeling that she wasn't in the wrong, Casey doesn't plan on taking the situation lightly.
She stated: "So right now I'm actually looking for representation to try and fight this, because, it's b******t, and we all know it's b******t. And I'm not gonna stand for it.
"I'm not gonna just sit quietly and just have it thrown out. No, I want justice. I want this to be heard. I'm tired of them abusing their power."
People in her comments section were heavily on her side, greatly upset at the cop's actions.
"Those cops were just jealous… Smh. I think you look beautiful," one wrote.
"It's Louisiana, it gets hot and muggy. What else are you supposed to wear?" added another.
"Sounds like internalized misogyny on their part to me," a third said.

"That’s indecent exposure in LOUISIANA?!?! Have they ever gone to Walmart?"
"I would be posting the officer's name and calling a sergeant with that info because they have body cams and can pull that. Also, sue [the department] for damages," a final person suggested.Topics

Crime and Public Safety | San Leandro man sentenced to six years in rape case where victim was taken from SF to Oakland, choked unconscious repeatedly
OAKLAND — A Bay Area man was sentenced to six years in state prison after accepting a plea deal in a case where prosecutors accused him of taking a woman from San Francisco to Oakland and sexually assaulting her, court records show.
Zachery Rideaux Jr., 30, pleaded no contest to forcible rape and was sentenced in an October court hearing in Alameda County, records show. He was transferred last month to North Kern State Prison to begin serving the sentence. He received 526 days worth of credit for time served in jail and can reduce his prison term by 15 percent with good behavior.
At the hearing where Rideaux was sentenced, Judge Andrew Steckler noted that Rideaux had told a probation officer the charges were “(expletive) fake” and that, “I know I’m innocent this time,” and asked Rideaux if he had any reservations about the plea deal.
“I just want to take my deal and move forward with my life,” Rideaux said.
Rideaux was charged in July 2021 with rape and forcible oral copulation, along with a special allegation of kidnapping the victim for purposes of a sex offense. The woman testified at a preliminary hearing last June that she met Rideaux — who she knew by the nickname “Soulja” — through a friend, and that they’d hung out at a party San Francisco. She said after arguing with a friend who wanted to stay longer, she agreed to split an Uber drive with Rideaux, thinking they were going to another part of the city, but they ended up crossing the Bay Bridge into Oakland.
She said he took her to an apartment there, but was trying to figure out how to return to San Francisco. She said she took a slice pizza and was eating it when Rideaux came “within a foot of me.” She testified when she told him he was making her feel uncomfortable, he struck her. From there, she made a break for the door, but Rideaux grabbed her from behind.
“He choked me until I couldn’t breathe and I passed out,” she testified.
From there, the woman recalled being choked to the point of unconsciousness, waking up, and being choked out again, multiple times, during a lengthy sexual assault. Eventually, she woke up, didn’t see Rideaux, and was able to leave, she said.
“I just remember running down the street screaming until I saw some people in a store, and then they came out to help me and I think called an ambulance,” she testified.
