GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- A naked man was restrained, sedated and jailed after a disturbance at the Jefferson State Hemp Expo in Southern Oregon early Sunday morning, police said.

Witnesses said the man was damaging vehicles and fighting with people on the expo grounds, at 14390 Highway 238, according to the Oregon State Police.

First responders at the scene "were led to a parking lot in a grass field, where four men were restraining a naked, agitated male on the ground," said Lt. Gregg Hastings. He said witnesses told investigators that the man had also "heavily damaged a vehicle while two frightened women sat inside."

Timothy A. Seaux, 27, of Grants Pass, was still kicking and fighting as he was put into a patrol car, Hastings said. Seaux was then sedated by medical personnel and taken to a nearby hospital.

Upon his release, he was jailed on charges of criminal mischief, menacing, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.
