A man is facing charges after he reportedly yelled and exposed himself to customers at a Walmart in Tysons, police say.

According to authorities, the 30-year-old man ran when Fairfax County Police Department officers responded to the department store in Tysons West around 3:15 p.m. on May 5. After his arrest, he allegedly offered authorities money to release him.

“Defendant offered multiple times to pay the officers if they did not arrest him,” authorities said in a court document. “This happened at the scene, in transport and at the Magistrate window.”

The man, who was listed as a hospital control room officer, is facing a misdemeanor charge of public drunkenness and a felony charge for bribery.

“While the officers continued to investigate, the victim of the exposure advised they did not wish to prosecute,” police said.

The defendant is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on June 28 in Fairfax County court.
