Officers attempted to engage the man in conversation, but he would not respond, she said. The man began flexing his muscles.

When the man, allegedly later identified as 34-year-old Steven Durelle Perry, began clenching his fists and screaming profanities at officers, he was placed under arrest.

He is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and indecent exposure.
