NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston Police Department charged a man with indecent exposure Monday after he was allegedly seen riding a bicycle naked.

Police say 34-year-old Shane Riley was the man captured on video surveillance outside a business on Tile Drive.

The report states it was around 8 a.m. when a worker of a business on Tile Dr. reported that she was watching live surveillance video when a bicyclist dismounted and walked up to a reflecting glass.

"Video surveillance recorded [the man] with hands touching his genital area, and [he] further pulled the shorts down to look at his reflection," the report states.

"[Riley] rode around the property on his bicycle and continued to ride his bicycle down Tile Drive without any pants on."

Police said when they made contact with Riley, he put his shorts back on.

It wasn't enough to prevent his arrest. He was taken to the Charleston County Detention Center and is scheduled to appear in court on June 26.

The man continued to ride his bike while a police officer noticed the naked man, when the bicyclist was alert of the officer, he stopped his bike and put his clothes on.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
