MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a North Carolina woman has been arrested for wearing a thong at Myrtle Beach.

Police say 22-year-old Tiara Garness, of High Point, N.C., was warned twice to cover up around 5 a.m. Friday on Ocean Boulevard.

Authorities say when Garness refused, she was arrested and charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure.

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

A phone listing for Garness could not be found.
