VIENNA (AP) — A young woman was stopped by police Tuesday after cycling past officers manning a radar trap on a highway in northeastern Austria, wearing nothing but a pair of white tennis shoes.

Police spokesman Johann Baumschlager says the woman faces a fine of up to 1,000 euros, or $1,340.

Baumschlager said Wednesday the woman was identified and told to go home and get dressed. She was also informed she had been charged with disturbing public decency — a misdemeanor that carries a maximum 1,000-euro fine.

She had previously been sighted in the buff while shopping in a supermarket and at a gas station, filling up her car.

The woman was not named by police, in keeping with the country's privacy laws.
