Six Flags Cops Nearly Had Me Arrested Over My Shorts, Colorado Mom Claims

A Colorado mom is getting all sorts of international attention over her claim that Six Flags Oklahoma Frontier City security team stopped her for wearing inappropriate shorts that the security team deemed too short. Six Flags has since fired back at Bailey Breedlove, saying that their dress code enforcement team stopped her because “her shorts exposed a significant portion of her buttocks,” according to a statement issued to the New York Post.

The Six Flags company website has a dress code requirement that states “proper attire must be worn in the park at all times,” but it doesn’t state a proper length for shorts. Breedlove claims she felt “terrified” that the Six Flags shorts police were going to throw her in jail over this situation.

In a May 2 Facebook post that has now gained attention from media outlets around the world, Breedlove explains her side of things.

“Hello. I was at your park and 4/30/21. My experience there was traumatizing. I purchased tickets and parking online which was a lot of money. My family an I were welcomed into your park just fine at 5 pm. We were having fun, enjoying rides and spending money on what we thought was going to be a great vacation spot in Oklahoma city. About 7 pm my daughter was yelled at by a park police officer for rolling down a hill on her heelies right next to me, I was holding her hand. Then she proceeded to follow me and grabbed my shoulder to turn me around and proceeded to tell me my shorts were ‘too short’.

“I committed no crime and proceeded to walk to my boyfriend as I am autistic and have a hard time talking to officers. She followed me yelling and calling for backup. Then your incompetent manager showed up and began body shaming me. I was told I needed to go buy new shorts which I am not obligated to purchase anything I don’t want to.”

Update: we have spoken with the Oklahoma police department captain and he assured us this was NOT an Oklahoma city…

“Then I was threatened with criminal trespassing when I agreed to buy new shorts so my family could enjoy their vacation. I was then pushed and escorted toward the entrance. Accepting this, we were about to leave and were blocked by your female officer from leaving and she pulled out her cuffs and demanded my ID. When we asked for probable cause their answer was ‘because they are the police’. At this point we started recording so we do have video of the unlawful tactics. They wouldn’t provide us with badge numbers and I was terrified I was about to go to jail over a pair of shorts.

“Your officers had my 11 year old daughter crying hysterically thinking her mother was about to be arrested. Your policies are vague and confusing and the way you body shame and discriminate is unlawful. I paid a lot of money at your park for our family vacation and I believe I deserve a refund for the trauma caused to my family over a pair of shorts on a hot day. I will not be letting this go as this is 2021 and not middle school.”

Breedlove added that she’s been slapped with a five-year ban from the park over the incident and says she will not be returning to any Six Flags parks. “You should be ashamed with yourselves,” the mother added.

The feeling seems to be mutual. Six Flags isn’t backing down, saying Breedlove was “given multiple opportunities to change or cover up, but refused. Instead, she responded with profanity and offensive conduct, including further exposing her buttocks.”

Now, let’s see if Six Flags wants to enforce this rule all summer or if this was a one time deal because those of you who go to amusement parks know this isn’t a one-time deal here. As a Cedar Point customer, I know that there are some ladies walking around that park who clearly shouldn’t be wearing Breedlove-like shorts that’s for sure.

Stay tuned. It’s going to be a wild summer at the parks.

  1. “A Colorado mom”? That’s what we’re going with here? Not “A Colorado stripper/steampunk enthusiast?” Or maybe “A Colorado bikini motorcycle rider?” Or even “A Colorado woman with a history of questionable tattoo decisions?” Come on, Joe, you did that on purpose.

  2. What she is wearing is no more revealing the bathing suit but if the park says your clothes are inappropriate its their right to ask you to leave. Just leave and change your clothes come back.
