Erykah Badu Fined Over ‘Indecent’ Video

Thanks to an official complaint, Erykah Badu has been charged with disorderly conduct after all. Issuing a statement Friday, Texas Sergeant Warren Mitchell charged Badu just hours after claims that the singer would not be charged Thursday. As previously reported, Badu’s now controversial music video for “Window Seat” featured the award winner removing garments while walking in Dealey Plaza. According to Sergeant Mitchell, calls have been flooding their police department all week from all parts of the country. “Having a fact witness that was there, is what let us file the charges,” Mitchell said in his statement to press Friday. “After much discussion, we feel that these charges best fit her conduct. She disrobed in a public place without regard to individuals and small children who were close by.” Badu can either fight the charge or pay the fine. Disorderly conduct is punishable by a fine of up to $500 (£328). Witness Ida Espinosa, 32, filed an official complaint.
