Busted Taking Photos for Cash

8/18/2011 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0818-louisa-naked-cowgirl-getty-EXThe woman who claims to hold the coveted title of original Naked Cowgirl -- was busted Wednesday night for snapping photos with NYC tourists ... and allegedly charging cash for them.

The pasty wearing, guitar strumming Naked Cowgirl -- real name Louisa Holmlund -- was doing her thing ... posing for photos with tourists in Times Square. But according to law enforcement sources she was also charging money for the pics ... without a valid license to do so.

We're told Holmlund was arrested, jailed, and released sometime Thursday.

Don't worry NYC ... Louisa is undeterred. This evening on Facebook she said, "I still have my pasties on and who cares about a little jail smell right? Let's get f**king naked ;)"

in barcelona these people have like buckets in front of them and people "donate" a minimum of 1 euro. some try to chase you down if you don't want to pay. how else is she supposed to make money out there ----> if not to charge?

why can't she just get the friggin' license?

keep doing it though. sounds fun. if you have the body for it! :)

If you are looking to try something new, the clothes free lifestyle could be your answer to meeting new nudist friends who look just like everyone is the best choice for you! Nothing wrong with being naked as long as you enjoy it and can handle it. We are all born that way!

She's not the Naked Cowgirl, she is not licensed by the Naked Cowboy and she is going to get sued again

TMZ has to do something about the fake posters that are now
bold enough to flood every story thread with nonsensical bull.
I feel rather disrespected as an American if they think anyone
will just drop the thrilling and exciting stories Harvey puts up
and just race to their site to buy their garbage.

FYI, New York Port Authority is raising the tolls on the
bridges to Manhatten to $17 one way. Money is for
construction of new World Trade Center, or so they say.
Cowgirl better get out of town while she can.

People get stupider and uglier every day. Wouldn't you think this cow would have done something useful with her life by now. Nope, just more garbage on the street.

She had a really rough night. The cops treated her like crap and were purposefully messing with her throughout her nearly 24 hour jail experience. She's been arrested at least 6 different times for small issues. She IS legally franchised under the naked cowboy and has been doing it since 2005. Sandy Kane (a much older has been) is the one who was being sued. Louisa is a very free spirited, loving person and for the most part enhances people's experiences in the overly sanitized tourist pig pen that we all know as times square.
I'm her best friend and roommate, and you should see her fully naked, which we both are right now. ;) Live life by your own rules my friends.
