UPDATE (11:55 AM): Video of the arrest has now been posted.

Multiple sources confirm that Krista Clouse, the beautiful opera singer you have likely heard around Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, was arrested last night in Old Town. See video above for a sample of her singing.

We got turned on to this story via our news tips to this post on TwinCitiesArts.com. We also reached out to the Alexandria Police (APD) for information about the arrest.

If you have stopped to hear Ms. Clouse on the streets of Old Town Alexandria, you likely have heard her music playing via a wireless speaker while she sings. While busking is indeed legal on the streets of Alexandria, Virginia, one cannot busk on the public streets with the help of a noise amplification device without a permit.

Last night Ms. Clouse, who was recently not permitted to sing on Torpedo Factory property, was busking and was approached by APD officers in the 200 block of King Street who informed her that sans permit, she was in violation of noise ordinance 11-5-4b. When she refused to stop singing, she was arrested and later released on her own recognizance.

While Ms. Clouse has been singing on the streets of Old Town for some time, it is unclear why Ms. Clouse was suddenly approached last night by APD.
