MANATEE -- A man removed his pants and T-shirt while sitting in a Chili's but exacerbated his disorderly conduct by spitting at a deputy, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

At about 11 p.m. Wednesday, Letrail Tresalus, 24, of Palmetto, suddenly stood up from his seat at the Chili's restaurant and bar at 3715 1st St. and removed his pants and T-shirt, according to a sheriff's office report.

Tresalus then began to swear and yell at Chili's employees, the report adds.

Tresalus put his clothes back on but raised his hands to the Chili's manager when he was confronted about his behavior, the report states.

A deputy arrived and placed Tresalus in his patrol car. During the drive to the jail, Tresalus, who was in the backseat, put his face up to the patrol cage and spit on the back of the deputy's head, according to the report.

He was taken into the jail with no further incident, the report adds.

He was being held on bonds totaling $2,620, on charges of battery on an officer and disorderly conduct.
