MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Authorities said a High Point woman was arrested for wearing a thong at Myrtle Beach.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported that 22-year-old Tiara Monique Garness was warned twice to cover up around 5 a.m. Friday on Ocean Boulevard.

Authorities said Garness was arrested after she refused and was charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure.

Wearing a thong swimsuit has been illegal in Myrtle Beach for 20 years.
