Are you ready for this? Because it sounds like something straight out of an action-comedy movie.

A woman was arrested in Florida after she interrupted a police stand-off by ploughing through the tense scenes on a golf cart - while naked.

Jessica Elisabeth Smith, 28, now faces a charge for resisting an officer without violence after her antics that disrupted the police, who say they were in the middle of a six-hour armed standoff with suspects in Dunedin, near Tampa, when Smith made things even more difficult.

Police were first on the scene due to reports of someone shooting at others from the roof of a home, according to WFLA. When the suspects fled the area, officers chased after them.

A gun was fired by one of the suspects towards bystanders, but fortunately, no one was injured, police said - though, during their attempted escape, the suspect allegedly shot himself in the leg.

As all this was happening, Smith drove into the crime scene in her golf cast, despite several Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office patrol cars marking the area, according to court documents.

Despite being warned by officers to get out of the cart, Smith allegedly ignored their demands and continued to drive toward the target’s home. Her “actions and inability to follow directions put multiple deputies at risk for potentially getting shot at,” the affidavit read.

Police were eventually able to get Smith out of the golf cart and apprehend her with handcuffs.

According to the affidavit, Smith not wearing any clothes and deputies believed she had been drinking. It read: “The defendant had a distinct odour of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person, and she was completely nude.”

The stand-off ended after six hours and led to the arrest of the suspect on the roof, who was also taken to hospital for his injury, as well as two other teenagers were also arrested too.
