Follow Daily Journal:



A Greenwood man was arrested for taking money from a woman and then exposing himself and urinating in a jail cell, and spitting at a correctional officer.

Reginald Whitehead, 23, was arrested on charges of battery, battery with bodily waste, robbery, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and public indecency.

A woman called police around 1 a.m. Friday and told officers a man had taken $10 from her. She told police the man had approached her and asked her for change, and after the woman pulled out some pocket change the man took $10 from her, pushed her to the ground and ran away, a Greenwood Police Department report said.

A friend told the woman the man lived in an apartment complex in the 700 block of Woodale Terrace. As police searched the building, they saw Whitehead trying to leave and stopped him. The woman told officers Whitehead was the man who had taken the money, the report said.

After Whitehead was taken to the jail, he exposed his genitalia and buttocks and urinated. When correctional officers went to place Whitehead in a restraint chair, he spit in an officer’s face, the report said.

Whitehead, 725 Woodale Terrace, Apt. 7 was being held on $15,000 bond.
