Report: Man jailed for flashing hotel worker, groping cop

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - A North Charleston man was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly showing his penis to a night auditor and then grabbing a female police officer's crotch.

According to a North Charleston police report, 46-year-old Christopher Sanders knocked on the glass doors of the Holiday Inn Express on Montague Avenue where he claimed to be a guest.

The night auditor let Sanders into the hotel where he promptly dropped his drawers and stroked his penis while staring down the night auditor, police said.

He left a few minutes later.

The night auditor called police who found him just down the street from the hotel.

When the investigating officer found Sanders, he reportedly appeared "unstable" and denied ever being at the hotel. But he was placed into handcuffs and patted down.

While he was being searched by the female officer, Sanders allegedly took a step backwards and cupped both of his hands on the officer's "vaginal area."

Sanders was charged with indecent exposure and second-degree assault.

He's currently being held in the Charleston County Detention Center on a $30,000 bond.
