An ordinance that was just passed in Sand Springs means it may be illegal for anyone over the age of 10 to be topless in public (male or female).

According to News On 6 "The effect of these modifications is that the act of being topless may be unlawful for people regardless of their sex," said Chief of Police Mike Carter.

He goes on to say "With this action, Sand Springs has eliminated a part of our ordinance that may have been discriminatory, and makes our position consistent with other communities across our state and around the country. This ordinance protects our community standards and values, while also respecting the 14th amendment rights of all people and the jurisdiction of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals,"
