PETALING JAYA: The woman who was recorded stripping off her clothes in Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the police on Sunday.
"A urine test was conducted on the suspect who was detained following a report of public indecency under Section 509 of the Penal Code, and her urine tested positive for methamphetamine," said Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainol Samah.
He said the suspect was a 32-year old spa worker in Kuala Lumpur.
On Saturday, police arrested the Sabahan, who was caught on video removing her white jacket, black blouse and her bra at the popular tourist street during an argument over her refusal to pay for her meal.
ACP Zainol confirmed that the woman was nabbed at a hotel in Jalan Sultan at about 5.30am.In the video, she was seen arguing with another person and later took off her clothes.
The incident took place at 4.30pm on Thursday.
“She had eaten at a restaurant in Petaling Street and refused to pay for the food,” ACP Zainol said.
He said the woman might have been tipsy then as she had consumed two bottles of beer at the restaurant.
“She scolded the owner and taunted her,” he said, adding that the restaurant owner did not file a police report.
The woman stripped, apparently to avoid settling the RM18 bill.
She had gone to the chicken rice restaurant with a man, described by witnesses as Caucasian.
Witnesses said the woman’s companion then got into a scuffle with the restaurant operator when she was not allowed to leave.
The duo fled when policemen arrived at the scene.
