HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A bizarre arrest out of Henrico County's Short Pump area, where a woman is accused of standing naked in an elevator with a gun.

Police say Franchesca Dominique Edwards, 25, of Norfolk was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and brandishing a firearm. It happened Friday night at the Hilton Hotel in the 12000 block of West Broad Street.

Officers were told a nude female was riding an elevator, and holding a gun. Edwards was later taken into custody in the parking lot. It is not immediately known if she was still nude at the time of the arrest.

The weapon turned out to be a "cap pistol."
