NANTICOKE - Lisa Drozdowski leaned against the judge's desk in a sleeveless blue dress, a demure change from her June appearance when police say she took a nude ride through the streets of Nanticoke on the back of a motorcycle.



During a brief preliminary hearing Thursday before District Justice Donald Whittaker, four of her nine charges from the June 12 incident were withdrawn. The remaining charges were waived to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.

Drozdowski now faces charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, tampering with or fabricating evidence, resisting arrest and open lewdness.

Charges of indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, possession of drug paraphernalia and public drunkenness were dropped.

Police say the Nanticoke resident and former county employee became hostile and loud after her late night, naked romp through the town was curtailed by officers on patrol. After being clothed and transported to the police station, police say she tried to flush a pipe believe to be used for drugs down the jailhouse toilet and repeatedly kicked an officer when he attempted to intercede.
