BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Three women who police said were "twerking" in front of Beaverton City Hall were arrested and found to be in possession of drugs Monday afternoon, according to the Beaverton Police Department.

It was the most unusual of calls for Beaverton police on Monday afternoon. 

Beaverton police said Coura Velazquez showed up at municipal court to pay a fine for a warrant, and that's when she and her two friends left the building and began "twerking" in front of City Hall near the municipal court windows.

Velazquez and Brittney Medak, who are both from Vancouver, exposed their genitals while twerking, and Medak went on to lift her skirt and urinate between two cars, a police spokesman told FOX 12.

According to police, the third woman, 22-year-old Leokham Yothsombath, filmed the entire incident with her cell phone. Several court employees were watching, too, and when the group left City Hall, they were stopped by a Beaverton police officer on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway just west of Southwest Griffith Street.

Once Medak gave police consent to search her car, they found evidence of several drug-related crimes, the police spokesman said.

Medak now faces charges of disorderly conduct, offensive littering, tampering with drug records, possession of prescription drugs schedule 4 and possession of marijuana.

Velazquez, meanwhile, faces charges of disorderly conduct, possession of prescription drugs schedule 2 and possession of methamphetamine. Yothsombath is also facing a long list of charges: possession of cocaine, possession of prescription drugs schedule 4, tampering with drug records and possession of marijuana.

All three were lodged at the Washington County Jail.
