Byron Harvey apparently had a lot going on in his pants.
For starters, Indian River County Sheriff’s Office deputies say he had almost $450 worth of shoes, clothes and other items stuffed in his trousers.
Harvey, 38, was arrested Sept. 10 after deputies went to a Bealls store in the 5900 block of 20th Street in Vero Beach and encountered him in a dressing room, a recently released affidavit states.
A sergeant heard and smelled Harvey burning plastic packaging off things and saw him jamming stuff in his pants.
Harvey, who also is accused of starting to fight deputies, was wearing shorts and pants.
At the jail, deputies found six green pills in Harvey’s left front pants pocket.
Harvey, who has “thug” tattooed on one arm and “life” on the other, said the pills were his girlfriend’s, according to the sheriff’s web site and the affidavit. He said they were in his pocket because she’d been wearing his pants.
