Indian model and actress Poonam Pandey was arrested by Mumbai police for “indecent behaviour” Friday night, according to India’s FirstPost.

“Poonam Pandey was caught wearing skimpy attire and indulging in indecent acts,” an Indian police officer told FirstPost. “She was not accompanied by a male and waited for someone for quite a long time. We have let her off with a warning.”

Police would not elaborate on what Pandey’s “indecent acts” were.

But Pandey eventually took to Twitter to defend herself.

“Listening to songs in the car is not an ‘indecent behaviour’ please (sic) stop spreading such kind of (sic) news about me,” Pandey tweeted.

The model and actress  shot to fame in 2011 when she promised to go nude if Team India won the 2011 Cricket World Cup. And although the team won, Pandey didn’t follow through with the promise.
