MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man who was found beaten bloody, nearly naked, and apparently robbed of several hundred dollars was then arrested by police for public intoxication. According to the report, it was also his birthday.

An officer responded to St. George Bar Wednesday, September 7 around 4:30 a.m. and found a man with just torn boxer briefs on, blood on his face, and gashes on his body, according to a Myrtle Beach police report.

The officer also observed a knot almost the size of a golf ball under the victim’s eye. The man was identified in the report as 52-year-old Mark Anthony Brooks.

The police report states that Brooks kept repeating himself and kept saying “Bad boys, bad boys, whacha gonna do.”

The responding officer didn’t gain many details from Brooks, but he did say that two or possibly three males beat him, took his clothes, and stole $700 from him.

EMS responded to the scene, but Brooks wasn’t cooperative at all, according to the report.

After about 20 minutes, the responding officer arrested Brooks because of his slurred speech, was unsteady on his feet, and was not making any sense.

The ambulance transported Brooks to Grand Strand Medical Hospital.

An employee at the bar said that Brooks was drinking at the bar for his birthday.
