Police: Naked man beat cars, brawled at Oregon hemp fest

The Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, Ore.  — State police arrested a naked man who was beating on cars and getting into fights at a Southern Oregon music festival that promoted the benefits of hemp.

Troopers went to the Jefferson State Hemp Expo in the Josephine County community of Provolt early Sunday and found four men holding the naked man on the ground. Troopers took him into custody. They said he kicked one of them several times and kept kicking in the back of the patrol car.

Medical personnel sedated the man and he was taken to a hospital in Grants Pass.

State police say 27-year-old Timothy A. Seaux was later taken to jail and held on charges of criminal mischief, menacing, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.
