A 19-year-old woman was cited for indecent exposure Thursday while working at a South Hill bikini barista stand.
The woman was walking to a storage shed at Bikini Bottom Espresso when a woman driving by saw her and called 911, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. The barista was wearing “pasties” – small pieces of what appeared to be black electrical tape covering her nipples.
The caller was with her children when she noticed the barista at the stand at 7919 176th St. E., Troyer said.
A deputy arrived and cited the barista. Investigators are now working to see if this is more widespread, Troyer said. They will look at other stands and cite businesses if they are violating indecency laws.
Investigators took the pasties as evidence.
