Three women removed their bikinis and went half-n*ked at a beach to protest a topless order imposed by the police at the popular holiday beach.
According to Dailymail, the trio refused to put on their bikini tops when approached by officers at Necochea, the Atlantic coastal resort in Buenos Aires. One even whipped her top off when being warned about their behaviour.
The three friends eventually agreed to leave but only after police called in reinforcements over fears that the argument could escalate.
Although going topless in Spain has been accepted for years, it still raises eyebrows in Argentina and is not the norm. It was gathered the it was other tourists at the beach who called the police after the women took off their tops.
The trio alleged they were being picked upon and said they had as much right as a man to go topless. The row eventually involved other beach users, some of whom agreed with their stance, others who objected. At one stage, about 20 police officers in six patrol cars arrived.
'At one stage, the discussion became very heated,' one onlooker told the Spanish press. 'A police officer apparently told them to put their breasts away as people were fed up seeing them. They were also told to go away and find a proper nudist beach.'
The women only agreed to move away after the police said they would put them in handcuffs. The incident happened in Argentina.
