MINNEAPOLIS - A woman arrested for going topless at a Minnesota United game last month no longer faces prosecution.

A week after 23-year-old Rose Picklo was arrested, the Minneapolis city attorney’s office told the court it was dropping the gross misdemeanor indecent exposure charge against her.

“After reviewing all reports, the above-reference case is dismissed as an exercise of prosecutorial discretion,” prosecutors said in a court filing.

Picklo grew up in Grand Forks, where she attended Central High School.

Another woman told University of Minnesota police that her 7-year-old son had noticed Picklo baring her breasts in a row behind them during a Sept. 23 soccer game at TCF Bank Stadium.

Police said Picklo refused their request that she put on a shirt on and had to be carried away.

She was charged with exposing herself to a minor under 16.
