Jennifer Lien (AKA Kes of "Star Trek: Voyager") Arrested // Charged with Two Counts of Indecent Exposure

Jennifer Lien as "Kes"
I was just reading about Jennifer Lien, who played the character Kes on the first three seasons of "Star Trek: Voyager" back in the mid-90s. Her character was one of my favorite characters in that series and I was disappointed when the actress left the program.

Lien was arrested earlier this month and charged with two counts of exposing herself to a child under the age of 13:
Neighbor Carey Smith says Lien recently walked by her home and commented on how the children were being cared for while two were crying.  “Started saying vulgar things. I mean really vulgar things, I told her to mind her own business and keep on walking,” said Smith. That’s when things got even stranger. “All of a sudden, here come the shirt up. She started flashing and, ‘Woo hoo,’ and I said, ‘And what respect is that for kids?’ There was none. And then she turned around and dropped her pants,” said Smith. Parents, worried things might escalate, then called 911... 
At the time, Lien denied to police that she exposed herself, but officers issued a detainer summons, charging her with indecent exposure. When Roane County deputies visited Lien’s house, her front door was open. After knocking on the door, she yelled at deputies to come in. Deputies said Lien was naked on her couch, covered by a blanket. She told the deputies she was expecting them. Then dispatch told the deputies that Lien had an active warrant from the Harriman City Police Department. When they told her about the warrant, she said they needed to leave her alone, saying she “wasn’t going any (expletive) where.” The two deputies repeatedly asked Lien to put on clothes, eventually calling for a female deputy.
They said Lien told them she would have all of them shot and killed. Eventually, deputies said the put Lien in handcuffs, putting a shirt and pants from the jail on her. They said she refused to walk to the patrol car and they had to carry her to the car, before driving to the Roane County Detention Center. Lien’s bond was set at $2,500.

The 41-year-old former actress was arrested for domestic assault on June 4, 2012. More recently on April 17, 2015, Lien was arrested and charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault in relation to a speeding offense.

Sounds to me like bipolar behavior.
