Ocean City Lets Women Ditch Their Bikini Tops

While they wait for an opinion from Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh, the Ocean City Beach Patrol will note the occurrences of female toplessness but not ask the women to put on a top, according to a memo from patrol Capt.

So late past year, a local advocate asked the State's Attorney to look at the laws about toplessness on Ocean City's beaches, and come to a firm conclusion on the matter. "However, now that the law has been challenged", he said, "we don't feel like we can tell people not to sunbathe topless".

But, they should not approach topless women-even if beach-goers request it.

With local schools out of session and temperatures expected to vault well into the 90s in the region next week, 2017's beach season is well and truly here - but state Attorney General's office has yet to state an opinion.

In the meantime, Ocean City Police said they'll address concerns on a case by case basis. "We want our lifeguards to have their eyes on the ocean, as the safety of our swimmers is their first priority".

"The woman has provided what she believes is legal justification for her to be allowed to sunbathe and walk about our beaches topless", Arbin wrote.

"The Maryland attorney general's office is now in the process of working on an opinion on the matter", Raquel Coombs, spokeswoman for that office, told CNN. At that time, the State's Attorney reached out to the Maryland Attorney General's Office for an opinion on the matter, which the Town of Ocean City is still anxiously awaiting. The mayor of Ocean City and the City Council are both opposed to the act. Our police department, on the other hand, will respond to calls from the Beach Patrol and complaints from our beach patrons, should any activity of toplessness occur.

Ocean City, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, is a major beach destination for folks in the mid-Atlantic states.
