When you first glance at the now viral photo of three girls shopping in a convenience store, everything appears normal. Yes, they are all wearing bikinis but in a beach town that isn’t too weird. It’s something else lurking in the picture that has people shocked. Take a closer look and you’ll notice an accessory one of the girls probably doesn’t want you to notice.
The young blonde in the middle has accessorized her outfit with an ankle monitor. You know, the kind that criminals wear when they’re under house arrest…
Thankfully Imgur user JarJarDrinks has eagle eyes and snapped the photo. The social media user from the United States uploaded the image to the social sharing site with the caption:
“Nothing adds to your summer look like a court ordered ankle monitor…”
It would be easy to miss the ankle monitor if you’re not looking closely. That’s probably what the blonde woman was hoping for. She figured since they were all wearing bikinis, her ankles would probably be the last place anyone would look.
Since the image was released online, it has been viewed 100,000 times in just two days. And of course, it has attracted hundreds of comments.
- “It’s actually quite nice that despite having made mistake & getting punished that person is trying to enjoy the summer,” wrote Imgur user Kraken928.
- “Thanks for pointing that out. I would say 90 per cent of us were not looking at her ankles,” added Spookyactionman.
- And Elbart wrote: “That thing covers almost more skin than her bikini.”
- “Swiggety swooty, they tracking that booty”
- “Considering she’s in a store, this is most likely alcohol sensor for alcohol related convictions. Measures alcohol content in your sweat.”
If you see someone with an ankle monitor, they could be wearing it for a number of reasons. Here are some of the most common purposes for an ankle monitor and how they work.
These electronic devices are tethered on your ankle. They are designed to be tamper resistant and must be worn at all times by the person. The device emits a radio frequency that is picked up at the monitoring station. That lets the police know where the person is at all times.
Some ankle monitors are equipped with listening functions. That means someone at the monitoring station can listen in on conversations at will.
Other ankle monitors are used to notify authorities if the person consumes alcohol or illegal drugs. According to AccidentsHappenAtty.com, “he Sentinel Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor, or SCRAM, is a common alcohol monitor. These special features of advanced monitoring devices allow authorities to ensure that you comply with the terms of your house arrest while enabling you to enjoy the privacy and limited freedom in your own home.”
Perhaps this beach babe had a run with police concerning alcohol abuse a DUI perhaps. And therefore, she is not allowed to drink.
What do you think she’s wearing an ankle monitor for?
