A 44-year-old man is accused of exposing himself “to all rush hour traffic traveling on Stonewall Jackson Boulevard and John C. Calhoun Drive” around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday.
He’s facing misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure and public disorderly conduct.
A woman reported seeing the man while her vehicle was stopped at a traffic light on Stonewall Jackson Boulevard, according to an incident report.
She claimed the man was standing at the side of a nearby building “with his pants pulled down to his ankles.”
She yelled at the man and asked him what he was doing.
He allegedly turned around, used an obscene hand gesture and then laid down behind the building.
Responding officers said the man smelled like alcohol.
They alleged he was uncooperative, unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech.
If convicted of indecent exposure, the man faces up to three years in prison and a court-imposed fine. He has addresses in Orangeburg and Alaska.
