Erykah Badu to Be Charged Over Nude Video

4/2/2010 6:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erykah Badu will be charged with disorderly conduct over her nude video shoot that took place in the middle of Dallas ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say the announcement will be made at a news conference held by the Dallas Police Department momentarily.

Erykah took her clothes off in the middle of Dealey Plaza -- the place where JFK was assassinated in 1963 -- for a music video shoot.

A Texas woman filed an indecency complaint with the PD.

UPDATE 6:17 PM ET: Cops say they have charged Badu with disorderly conduct and will mail her a citation. Badu faces up to a $500 fine.

She just sold a million more copies of her new CD that features that video. AN ARTIST WITH VISION, COURAGE AND DETERMINATION.

If you don't have one of her CD's, get it.

Not even with a permit was this an "appropriate" project. She's a talented artist - no doubt or argument there. But that spot in that Plaza is NO place for such behavior. This is not a "freedom of speech" issue. It is an issue of common sense, decency, and respect for our slain President. Yes, Dealey Plaza is used for other groups and activities. But Badu's use of the "X" in the street to fall, herself shot in the head, is immature, irresponsible, and disrespectful to Dallas and the nation.

Good! She needs to be charged because anyone else would be. The idiots taking up for her must not mind their kids around naked freaks out in the streets.

She should be charged with everything the law allows...she is a disgrace...if a man did it he would have been arrested right there on the spot and labeled a sex offender....Ashame for her gender and her race

Gee, what do you think all this extra attention will do for her album sales? I personally think anything that will get the stick out of the asses of Texans is a good thing and I don't have a problem with this. But, if you do, do you really want to bring as much attention to it as possible, or do you think you can move on with your life without being too traumatized by seeing a (EEK!) naked woman?

That's Texas for you. People get freaked out by a nude body and the police think it is such a big deal they are holding a news conference over it.
