Amber Arpaio is the name that Ashley Alexandra Dupre used in her "Girls Gone Wild" video appearance. The then 17-year-old runaway claimed to be 21 years old when asked about her age before taking off her top and gyrating on the dance floor. Until now, her first 15 minutes of fame went unremarked, languishing in the archives of the "Orlando Sentinel", which was documenting the first appearance of "Girls Gone Wild" in Miami. The article notes:
Inside the hotel, at an invitation-only event, several dozen college-age women danced, showing off belly piercings, French pedicures and girlish pigtails.
"It's not wild yet, but nobody's drunk yet," Arpaio said as she sipped a madras cocktail at a GGW mixer before hitting the clubs. Even at the mixer, cameras were rolling.
As the music grew louder, the women grew wilder, kissing and touching each other. Arpaio inched down her bikini top, and half a dozen disposable cameras flashed in addition to the GGW camera.
But while Amber Arpaio was under the age of consent in 2003, filming her nude will apparently not land "GGW" founder Joe Francis in jail, yet again. The company claims that because Ashley was filmed in a public place and didn't exhibit any sexual contact, no law was broken. But they are taking their time releasing the video footage.
