Naked man was beaten, robbed, then arrested after his birthday celebration, SC police say


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Early Wednesday morning Myrtle Beach police responded to the St. George Bar in reference to an assault and ended up arresting one man for public intoxication.

When officers arrived, they found a man, later identified as Mark Anthony Brooks, 52, who was naked except for a torn pair of boxer-briefs he was holding around his buttocks.

The report says the Brooks’ face was “covered in blood and he had multiple lacerations on his knees, elbows and feet.” Officers reported that he had a knot “almost the size of a golf ball” under his right eye.

Reports say the man was belligerent, repeating himself and saying “bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do.”

Brooks told officers three men pushed him in the area of the trash cans, beat him, took his clothes, and stole $700 from him.

EMS arrived to treat the man, but he was uncooperative, police said. After 15 or 20 minutes, reports say officers arrested Brooks for public intoxication.

He was then taken to Grand Strand Hospital in an ambulance.

A bar employee told police the man had been drinking at the bar that night because it was his birthday.Find 8News on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram; send your news tips to
