WOIO Reporter Goes Topless for Story on Naked Drunk Driver

It has all the makings of a classic sweeps story. High-profile crime? Check. Courthouse confrontation? Check. Topless Reporter? Check… wait, what? Yep, topless reporter.

Last week a 28-year-old woman led police on a drunken high speed chase in northern Ohio and, after finally surrendering, she exited her car to reveal that she was wearing next to nothing. The blurry police footage of the woman flipping out in the back of a squad car, wearing little more than a thong, made the internet rounds and was picked up by a handful of international news outlets last week.

With the woman due in court this week, WOIO decided to send reporter Paul Orlousky to the courthouse, where the woman’s lawyer cursed him out and hit the camera with a file folder. And then things got weird.

About two-thirds of the way through his story, Orlousky appears shirtless on-camera, apparently in an effort to recreate the woman’s exit from her vehicle (video below).
