Charges in nude woman's presence at Shelbyville Babe Ruth ballpark

Charges have been filed in an unexpected disturbance that sparked a call to Shelbyville Police from the Babe Ruth ball diamonds a week ago.


Police units were dispatched to 613 River Road Tuesday evening, June 1, in reference to a nude female in the park. On arrival, off-duty officers were restraining a female that was screaming. The female was laying prone in the grass and covered with a blanket when patrol officers arrived.  The female was still kicking her legs and yelling incoherently.


A witness told officers that she was watching the baseball game when she turned around and saw a nude female walking her dog just outside the center field fence. The female was identified as Alicia Pollard, 34, of Shelbyville. Pollard was told she needed to go due to her not wearing clothes and juveniles being present. However, Alicia continued to walk towards the baseball fence. The witness explained that Pollard walked up to the fence and flipped over it. Pollard was then rolling in the grass.


Pollard was told once again she needed to leave the baseball field.  She got up off the grass and started walking towards the victim. The victim was then jumped by Pollard. 


Pollard was removed from the victim and was eventually held by off-duty officers until patrol units arrived. 


Charges include battery, public nudity, performing sexual conduct in the presence of a minor and public intoxication.
