Berkley man charged with baring himself in the gym

The police were called to the gym on August 22nd.

The suspect was in the hot tub in the pool area of ​​the facility where a man and woman were together.

“The woman noticed as the suspect stepped out of the hot tub that he was baring himself and started petting himself,” said Lt. Albert Carter of the Royal Oak Police. “The other man told the suspect to stop, then the couple went to management at the front desk to report the incident.”

A manager went and confronted suspect Paul Clayton, 36, and told him they had received complaints about him, police said.

Clayton asked the manager if the complaint concerned a ring on his penis, then pulled down his shorts to expose himself, police said.

Police showed up and the suspect was arrested on charges of indecent exposure, a pending arrest warrant, illegal possession of prescription Xanax pills, and resisting and obstructing officers.

“When he was told he was being arrested, he tried to escape from the officers in the locker room,” Carter said. “He had a prescription drug in his pocket that wasn’t prescribed for him.”

Clayton has a gym membership that was revoked after the incident and is prohibited from returning to it.

He was tried in Royal Oak 44th District Court Tuesday and his loan was set at $ 50,000 in cash.

Clayton will appear before 44th District Judge Jamie Wittenburg at 10:30 am on September 21.
