In her arrest affidavit, Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies said Kelly Elkins was at a beach bar and drunk to the point where the manager refused to serve her. Investigators said Elkins then went to the bathroom and came back out completely naked, and she refused to leave when the manager asked her to.

Bar employees asked Elkins to get dressed multiple times, and according to the affidavit, “(The deputy) escorted her out of the bar and again told her to put her pants on. Defendant refused, stating she was too tired.”

Several people were inside Beach Lounge & Billiards in Tampa while this was happening at 2:15 a.m. Friday morning, WFLA reported.

Deputies said they arrested Elkins and brought her to jail on charges of disorderly conduct.

Elkins is listed as a member in good standing on The Florida Bar website, and her LinkedIn page says she is a licensed attorney, WFLA reported.
