There are helicopter parents. And there are parents who want to show elementary schools that trick strippers do where they make their nipple pasties go around and around like a helicopter. These are their stories.
“It had been going as a terrific event. The cafeteria was full. We probably had about 200 students in there from throughout the school,” Ron Lesko of the Albany School District told News10 in Albany, New York.
Just a benign school assembly early on a Friday morning, no more, no less.
That’s when 24-year-old Aydrea Meaders, pictured here, got on stage and started to dance. At first, it was routine dancing with the kids. But then things went off the rails.
Mind you, it’s like 10 am.
“Suddenly she stepped to the front of the group threw off her coat and stripped from the waist up,” Lesko told News10.
Within seconds, school staff rushed her Meaders stage and called the police. She was charged with seven counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child and one count of Public Lewdness. Friday mornings, always tough.
Which do you think is the best part: That this was an assembly celebrating Black History Month, or that this story actually led the local news in Albany?
The latter tells you everything you need to know about the awesomeness of local news. In a week in which the Pope resigned, President Obama delivered the State of the Union, cop-hunting Christopher Dorner burned up in a cabin, a meteor rained down over Russia, an asteroid buzzed by Earth, Olympic hero Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend and a cruise ship limped into port, a woman stripping at a school assembly leads the final local news broadcast of the week. “It is tonight’s Top Story!” Stellar.
