Spartanburg, SC -

A shirt with profanity written on it led to a Spartanburg man's arrest Saturday afternoon.

According to an incident report obtained from Spartanburg Public Safety, officers were dispatched to Barnet Park around 4 p.m. after receiving a report that a man was walking in the park with a shirt that had a profane statement written on it.  Officers searched the park and were unable to find the man. However, a short time later, officer found a man, identified as 50-year-old Michael Miller, of Spartanburg, wearing a shirt and walking on Woodward Street.

According to the report, a officer told Miller that he was not allowed to wear the shirt in the park due to the profanity on it. The report further states that Miller became irate and cursed at the officer.

Miller was told not to trespass on the park's property during the "Rock The Denim" event and he became even more upset. The officer stated that Miller walked up St. John Street and continued to yell and curse. He then proceeded onto Converse Street where another officer told him to leave the area for the day.

The officers further state that Miller was given several opportunities to leave the area, but chose not to do so. The report states that Miller went back to St. John Street and walked between Converse Street and Dean Street. He saw the police again, and the officers state that he began cursing at them. Miller was placed under arrest and charged with Public Disorderly Conduct.

Miller was released from the Spartanburg County Detention Center on a $262 bond.
