Anna Lee Halderman, Norwalk Connecticut woman, daughter of disgraced CBS producer busted for stripping nude at Compo Beach in Westport following belligerent verbal exchange.
The daughter of a disgraced CBS producer has been arrested for allegedly stripping down naked on a public beach in front of her young child in Connecticut, according to reports.
Anna Lee Halderman, 28, of Norwalk, was charged on Saturday with breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor for baring it all at Compo Beach in Westport on July 15, according to Patch.com.
Halderman’s dad, Robert “Joe” Halderman, was a CBS News producer who in 2010 was sentenced to six months prison for trying to extort former late-night funnyman David Letterman for $2 million, according to The Hour.
The elder Halderman found a diary belonging to ex-girlfriend and longtime Letterman assistant Stephanie Birkitt that proved the two were having an affair — one of several female workers the comic bedded as part of his infamous 2009 sex scandal page 6 reported at the time.
‘No recollection of what happened.’
The incident with Anna Lee Halderman started when another beachgoer called cops to complain about her while she was sunbathing without a bikini top with a young child nearby.
The beachgoer confronted the seemingly ‘inebriated’ Halderman who ‘allegedly became belligerent and proceeded to remove the bottom portion of her bathing suit exposing her buttocks,’ Westport police said in a statement.
Authorities were unable to locate Halderman the day of the alleged incident, but following a nearly month-long investigation that identified her as the culprit, she turned herself in to police on Saturday.
While being questioned during the investigation, she claimed to have no recollection of what happened at the beach, but did apologize for her actions according to a released statement via the Westport Police Department.
Following her surrender, Halderman was charged with second-degree breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.
Halderman was released from Norwalk Superior Court on $50,000 bail. She’s due back in court on Aug. 23.
