Man arrested after allegedly dancing naked in front of children

A Greenwood man is facing a number of charges stemming from an incident in which police say he was dancing naked in front of a large group of people, most of whom were young children, on Friday night.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, police responded to Twin Oaks Apartments on Holman Street at about 10:30 p.m. Friday night after receiving multiple calls about a man dancing naked in front of children outside building three at Twin Oaks Apartments. When police arrived, they observed a man, later identified as Sebastian Bernard Thomas, 35, of 410 Milwee St. in Greenwood, standing in front of building three with his pants around his ankles. He was not wearing underwear, a shirt, socks or shoes.

According to the report, police observed a group of approximately 40 people around Thomas. Most of the group was comprised of young children. When Thomas noticed the police car, he quickly pulled his pants up and began walking across the parking lot. He repeatedly told officers that they did not need to speak with him. He finally stopped and told officers that he did not do anything wrong. He then took a fighting stance and clenched his fists. Officers asked him to calm down, but Thomas refused and began swinging, striking one officer in the arm. He told officers that he had a lawsuit pending and that he had $15,000 on their heads.

According to the report, officers were able to get Thomas handcuffed, but he refused to get in the patrol car. Once they arrived at the Greenwood County Detention Center, Thomas refused to get out of the patrol vehicle. After officers got him out of the vehicle, he refused to walk into the detention center. Officers “forcefully compelled” Thomas into the detention center where they noticed he was bleeding from scrapes to two toes on his right foot. Officers then transported Thomas to the emergency room at Self Regional Medical Center.

According to the report, Thomas refused to exit the patrol car and enter the emergency room. Officers were able to get him into an exam room and restrained with the help of hospital security. Thomas then began to spit on the floor while nurses attempted to register him. Officers then placed a department-issued spit hood on him to prevent him from spitting on the floor any further. Thomas provided several different name s before finally giving his correct name, which officers verified with a previous mugshot.

According to the report, Thomas was released from the hospital and taken back to the detention center. He was issued citations for indecent exposure, assault and battery, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and false name to police.

I laugh at all the comments about "where were the kids parents"?? Really people, get out and see what goes on outside of your neighborhoods. Not everyone has parents, if they do in those neighborhoods where this happened, its usually just the mom or grandmom and they usually are strung out on something. We combined the schools for this!!! Think about that for a minute!!

This is another perfect example of the kind of story we do not want associated with Greenwood. I wish this type of news (if you can call it news) was not made so publicly popular. This was on Fox news last night. It's embarrassing for our town. We need to hear about the good being done in our town - not the idiots who seem to get front page coverage.

As sad as this is, the fact that several of the adults in the group of 40 didn't take the children out of this situation before the police showed up, is just as disturbing.
