A 40-year-old man is facing criminal charges after a disturbance in a Southmost neighborhood while partially clothed.

Brownsville police arrested Ricardo Spendler on two criminal charges on Tuesday.

Investigators told Action 4 News that Spendler was yelling obscenities to people on the 2000 block of Roosevelt Street.

Officers arrived at the scene where they found him with no shirt and sweat pants that exposed his genital area.

Police said that Spendler appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance and struggled with officers.

Investigators charged Spendler with indecent exposure and resisting arrest.
