Arrest: Jennifer Lien

Star Trek: Voyager actress Jennifer Lien is in custody in Tennessee after she is alleged to have exposed herself to her neighbours children during a disagreement.

Lien, who played Kes in three seasons of the hit show from 1995 to 1997, was arrested by police after her neighbour, Carey Smith, called them to her home.

Smith alleges that Lien became enraged at the noise her neighbour's children were making.

In an interview with CNN, Smith says that Lien 'started flashing' her breasts to which Smith replied 'And what respect is that for kids? 

'And then she turned around and dropped her pants.'

TMZ report that when police arrived, Lien refused to get dressed and made threats to the officers as they arrested her.

Lien, 41, has had previous brushes with the law in the past, including an arrest earlier this year for aggravated assault.

She retired from acting in 2002 and has one child, a son aged 13.
