Man arrested following dispute about being nude on a Myrtle Beach balcony

A Michigan man was charged with destruction of property after police say he threw a lit cigar at a man who yelled at him and a woman to get dressed after they were seen nude on a Myrtle Beach hotel balcony.

Ryan Douglas Yauch, 26, of Mount Pleasant, Mich., was charged after police were called to the Dayton House Resort at 2400 N. Ocean Blvd., police said.

A 39-year-old Fairmont, W.Va., man told police he yelled at a man and woman on a fourth floor balcony of the hotel to put some clothing on when he was walking to the parking area below them with his family, according to the report. The man said Yauch screamed obscenities at him.

The man said Yauch took a lit cigar and threw it at the man’s vehicle and it caused a burn mark in the paint, according to the report. When police confronted Yauch, he admitted he threw the cigar because he was upset at the man.
