According to the arrest citation, police responded to an area hotel in reference to Cornett. She had trespassed at the hotel previously, and once released from jail went back to the hotel and gained entry into a room and used the facilities while not having a reservation or a room rented.

Cornett was observed roaming around the facility with no clothes on while patrons were checking in and out of the hotel. When police arrived, Cornett was located in a bathroom without clothes on. The hotel staff recovered her clothing, and Cornett was told to get dressed. She was then arrested.

Cornett was charged with second-degree indecent exposure, theft of services and third-degree criminal trespassing. She was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $2,000 full cash bond.
