James M. Taylor, 58, was taken to the Land O’Lakes jail Thursday after being medically cleared. He was charged with disorderly intoxication in a public place and causing a disturbance.

HUDSON — For his 58th birthday Wednesday, James Taylor said, he drank 48 beers: This, he later told a deputy, was probably 10 too many.

And that's how Taylor — a transient, not the famous singer — found himself in this situation:

About 7:50 p.m. he was at Hudson Beach shouting at people, getting a stern talking-to from a deputy for causing a disturbance, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Taylor left.

He came back.

This time, his rantings were so fierce he terrified a grandmother and her young grandchildren, the report states. Then, just before 9 p.m., authorities said, Taylor exposed his genitals and "urinated in the middle of the sand."

When finished, Taylor "went back to yelling profanities," the report said.

The deputy returned and arrested Taylor, who was taken to the Land O'Lakes jail after being medically cleared. He was charged with disorderly intoxication in a public place and causing a disturbance. He remained at the jail Thursday in lieu of $100 bail.
