A 40-year-old Murrells Inlet man was charged with indecent exposure after going skinny dipping in the ocean in the Georgetown County portion of Garden City Beach on June 20.
According to an incident report, a woman from North Carolina called 911 after seeing the naked swimmer in the middle of the afternoon.
The woman said the man was “very intoxicated and nude on the beach,” the report states.
She told the deputy she first saw the man and a woman drinking alcohol and “making out.”
She said the man “stood up and removed all of his clothes and proceeded to enter the water and swim,” the report continues.
Other witnesses also reported seeing the stripped-down swimmer. The deputies found the man and identified him as Winston Kevin Perry.
The woman who made the initial complaint positively identified him and he was taken to jail. According to Detention Center records, Perry was released from jail the next day under a $762 bond.
