Spartanburg Police said they found a naked man in a ransacked room with what appeared to be feces on walls on chairs when they were called to a disturbance at a bar early Saturday morning.

Police said they were called to Gravy's Grill on Kensington Drive just after 3 a.m.

When officers arrived, owners told them that the naked man had destroyed several items and relieved himself in one of the rooms inside.

According to incident reports, officers walked in to room to find Darius Lyles "wearing no clothing at all and the area had an odor that was consistent with the owners' statement(s)."

Officers said the room was disarray.

Reports stated that a broken pool table had been knocked on its side, the door had been ripped off a freezer, and several chairs and lamps were broken.

"On the chairs and the walls was a dark substance that appeared to be feces," officers noted in the reports.

Officers said Lyles was transported to Spartanburg Regional Hospital for evaluation before he was taken to jail.

Lyles was charged with lewd exposure of private parts and malicious injury of personal property. According to online jail records, Lyles is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center on a $2,500 bond.
