A man faces charges after authorities say he exposed himself to a sheriff's deputy at a holiday party. Michael Underhill, 31, of 18177 Celia Ave. was having a bonfire party at his house south of Brooksville on Wednesday, when officials received noise complaints, a Hernando County sheriff's report said. When officials were called to the property, Underhill began to shout profanities at a deputy and then pulled down his pants, the report said. The deputy ordered Underhill to put down his beer and cigarette and to walk toward him, but the man refused. So the deputy arrested him. He faces charges of exposure of sexual organs and resisting an officer without violence. Underhill was taken to the Hernando County Jail, where he remained in lieu of $1,500 bail Thursday.
