(Bartlesville, Oklahoma) A 24-year-old local woman, Betsy Ann Brashear, has been accused of luring a 15-year-old boy into a tanning booth, stripping off her clothes and kissing him.
Brashear faces a charge of lewd acts with a minor under 16.
The boy, who is 15 years old, accompanied his mother to Colaw Gym on Thursday, June 21, 2012 about midnight. The boy's mother told police Brashear was flirting with her son, so she asked other gym members to help her keep an eye on them.Brashear was booked into custody at the Washington County Jail and released Friday on $20,000 bond.
A man who was working out later told the boy's mother that he saw the teen go into a tanning booth with Brashear, an affidavit says.
According to the affidavit, the mother pounded on the door and her son answered, but Brashear was attempting to hide in the room. The boy's mother then dragged Brashear, who was only wearing a sports bra, out of the room, the document says.
When she noticed Brashear was partially nude, the mother said she let Brashear go because there were several men watching.
To avoid further confrontation with the boy's mother, Brashear stayed inside the tanning booth until police arrived, the affidavit says.
The boy told investigators it began when Brashear asked him to spot her on the weights, then talked him into going into the tanning booth with her. Once inside, Brashear stripped off her clothes from the waist down and began kissing the boy, he said.
