SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (WYFF) — A man was charged with indecent exposure Friday afternoon after deputies arrested him wearing only socks.

According to the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Department, Jeffery Samuel Price, 23, of Spartanburg, was charged with seven counts of indecent exposure and second-degree burglary.

Price walked into a back door of a residence on Brianna Drive and exposed himself to a woman who shouted for her husband, who then chased Price out of their home with a broom, said deputies.

As Price was fleeing that location on foot, he exposed himself to numerous other victims, said deputies.

According to deputies, Price was spotted in the woods near Boiling Springs High School by a school resource officer sergeant, who had been flagged down by witnesses on Old Furnace Road.

The resource officer commanded Price to come to him, but deputies say Price continued running through the woods, and the officer told the other deputies that were responding to the area so a perimeter could be established.

According to deputies, when Price reappeared from the woods, he had removed all of his clothing except for his socks. After Price crossed Old Furnace Road, he was boxed in by other deputies and arrested.

Due to his strange behavior and admission of ingesting narcotics, Price was transported to the hospital, where he began touching himself sexually in the examination room, said deputies.

According to deputies, Price also confessed to killing his girlfriend. Violent Crime investigators located his girlfriend, who is alive and well.

Once statements were taken from all the victims and witnesses, and investigator with the Special Victims Unit presented the findings to a magistrate judge, who issued the appropriate warrants, said deputies.

Price was arrested last year for kidnapping and armed robbery, along with a female co-defendant. He remained in jail for one year and 55 days until those charges were adjusted on Feb. 26.
