WSFA – 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.”
Happy birthday MaOH MY GOD! Those assailants really did a number on ole Mark here.
Now that is one hell of a birthday story. Imagine being able to go into work on Monday, and having to do the standard small talk around the coffee machine.
“So what did you do this weekend Mark, it was your birthday, right?”
“Sure was! I blacked out, got the shit beaten out of me, was robbed, and then arrested while i was in my underwear!”
“Oh, ok. Happy belated!”
You can’t really beat that. No one is going to bring up the time that they got a little too drunk on their 21st. You pretty much have the trump card for anybody telling awesome birthday stories. You also probably don’t have an office job, so the above scenario is rendered completely void.
The best part of this story isn’t the fact that this guy got arrested on his birthday for getting robbed and being drunk in his tattered fruit of the loom, but rather his song choice. What would possess a man to be dragged off by police while singing “Bad Boys” at 4:30 in the morning. Could it have been the 20 Milwaukees Best that he had drank that night, or the golfball sized lump on his head? Maybe. But I like to believe it was just the fun loving spirit of Mark Brooks. Who doesn’t love a good birthday celebration?
