Jennifer Lien, best-known to Star Trek: Voyager fans as Kes, was arrested in Tennessee earlier this month.
The actress was arrested for allegedly exposing herself to neighborhood children.
Crying children tripped Lien’s wrath, according to their mother, Carey Smith. “[She] just started saying vulgar things, I mean really bad, vulgar stuff,” said Smith. “And I just told her to mind her own business, keep on walking.
“All of the sudden, here comes her shirt up. She started flashing, woo hoo, and I said, ‘What respect is that for kids?’ And there was none. And then all of the sudden, she turned around and dropped her pants.”
The police were called and a warrant was served on Lien several days later. The actress, sitting nude on the couch, refused to go with the deputies and threatened them.
This isn’t Lien’s first encounter with police. The former actress has been arrested before for aggravated assault, resisting arrest, evading arrest, reckless endangerment, and domestic assault.
