An Israeli tourist who stripped naked last week when New Zealand road workers whistled at her has been admitted to a mental health unit after allegedly assaulting a bar worker, police said Wednesday. The woman was arrested Friday night after allegedly putting out a cigarette on the face of a bar worker in the tourist town of Coromandel on North Island. She appeared in Hamilton District Court on Saturday charged with assault with intent to injure and was remanded to Waikato Hospital's mental health unit, said constable Peter Easton of the Coromandel police. Last Thursday, workmen in the small northern farming town of Kerikeri were repairing the main street when the young woman took offense at their whistling.
