NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Four Virginia teens are spending time behind bars after reportedly taking a stroll along the North Myrtle Beach sands in their birthday suits.
The incident report WMBF News obtained from the North Myrtle Beach police says they responded to the beach near 17th Avenue North around 9:30 p.m. Monday after receiving several calls complaining about men running naked on the sand.
Responding officers found 18-year-old Dionys Tristan Beck and 18-year-old Elijah Tyler Betz of Blacksburg, VA, 18-year-old Byron Shane Sullivan of Christiansburg, VA and 18-year-old Dominique Timothy Thompson-Pastrana of Dublin, VA running nude in the moonlight.
Once the four teens spotted the officers, they ran into the ocean and attempted to clothe themselves.
Prompted by police, Thompson-Pastrana, Sullivan and Betz walked out of the waves with their swim trunks on. Beck, however, was still nude, and officers gave him a trash bag to cover himself up.
All four of the young men were arrested and charged with nudity. Their bonds were set at $315.
