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 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 (SO) was later taken to jail and held on charges of criminal mischief, menacing, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

I understand making a typo. I understand accidentally putting the wrong link. I don’t understand accidentally tweeting a picture of a dominatrix when you’re a governor. The picture shows up right underneath the tweet whether you are on your phone, tablet, or computer. Somebody saw this picture and then clicked “tweet”, which makes it that much more hilarious.
Cases of road rage are usually no laughing matter, but an incident captured on video over the weekend in Russia is leaving millions of people howling with delight, as four people dressed as cartoon characters are seen pummeling a man.
It took place at 2:40 a.m. Saturday morning in the Siberian city of Chelyabinsk, when a vehicle suddenly pulls in front of a minivan on a highway and then stops.
When the driver gets out and approaches the other driver, that’s when the surreal scene begins.
As the Moscow Times reported, “The victim must have thought he was dreaming as Spongebob Squarepants, Mickey Mouse, a squirrel that looks like Scrat from ‘Ice Age,’ and an unidentified rabbit, kicked and punched him as he lay defenselessly on the floor.”
The rabbit character even lost his furry head in the scuffle, and had to pick it up off the street and replace it atop his noggin.
Once the characters had enough of smacking the man around, they got back in their minivan to make a quick getaway.
The whole incident was caught on camera by men in a third vehicle, who up until the incident had been complaining about their long trip and being sleepy, but then burst out laughing when the cartoon beat-down commenced in front of their eyes.
“Thank you for waking me up!” one of the witnesses shouted out in Russian as he was leaving.
The witnesses who recorded the event on their dashboard camera uploaded it to YouTube with the title “Rough Chelyabinsk Disney.” The clip has been viewed more than 3 million times as of Wednesday afternoon.
The Times noted some people have questioned the authenticity of the event, as it may have been an elaborate prank.
“At the start of the video, the passengers can be heard discussing municipal elections, which take place in Chelyabinsk next Friday. The clip may have been produced by spin doctors to generate publicity ahead of the vote, news site Znak.ru reported.”
The comic scene is getting plenty of comments on YouTube, including:
* “In Soviet Russia, Disney make laugh of you.”
* “Everything about this is fantastic.”
* “Never piss off a bunch of furries.”
* “Video of the year.”
* “Easily one of the best Russian dashcam vids you will ever see.”
* “There is justice. the guy who got beat up does seem to have caused the accident, and then went on to be mouthy about it. Let that be a lesson. Sometimes they are bigger and furrier than you are.”
* Can you imagine reporting this to the police? Lol. ‘Yeah and then [bleeping] Mickey and Spongebob came out of the van and kicked me to the ground. No, officer, I haven’t been drinking.’”
* “I don’t care whether it was real or fake. It made me laugh like an idiot for a full minute, and that’s all that matters to me.”
* “Apparently, a Russian patriot has been attacked by some Western characters. What is Putin waiting for?”
* “If there was ever a use for the phrase, ‘I don’t even…,’ this would be it.
* “What the [bleep] is going on over there in Russia?”
* “These guys have nukes.”
An entrepreneurial boy’s efforts at his Florida neighborhood lemonade stand are not appreciated by one resident who has been fighting years to put him out of business.
T.J. Guerrero, 12, sells .50 cent cookies and $1 strawberry lemonade from a card table on a corner near his Dunedin home, when he’s not mowing lawns for extra cash to pay for his cell phone and dinners with his mother.
Business is good for Guerrero with many neighbors flocking to him for refreshment.
The traffic to the corner is what neighbor Doug Wilkey said is the problem in four separate e-mails he sent to the City Hall over the last two years to get Guerrero’s “illegal business” shut down, according to local news source Tampa Bay Times.
Wilkey, 61, contends the boy’s year-round business reduces his property value because of the excessive traffic, noise, trash, illegal parking it creates. Guerrero denied the exaggerated claim when he told the Times that he has never had more than five people in line at his stand.
The angry neighbor used fear tactics in his correspondence with the city in hopes to stop the street corner sales, “The city could possibly face repercussion in the event someone became ill from spoiled/contaminated food or drink sales,” Wilkey wrote in one email.
Dunedin planning and development director Greg Rice won’t shut the boy’s stand down and told Wilkey,”We are not out there trying to put lemonade stands out of business.”
Defending his stance on the offensive lemonade stand Wilkey wrote in his email, “If this were a once a year event by a couple kids to earn a little money for a holiday or something, I would not have a problem with it.”
The sheriff has been called on more than one occasion to keep the peace, but nothing has been permanently resolved.
Despite being so outspoken on the issue, Wilkey refused to talk to the Tampa Bay Times but became particularly enraged this summer when he wrote the town that the stand was back “AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!”
The new mayor of a Minnesota town is just 7-years-old, and he doesn’t say much.
Voters in Cormorant elected a dog named Duke by a landslide. The 12 people in the village each paid $1 to cast a vote.
After winning, Duke got 5 hours of grooming and a new outfit.
Duke will be officially sworn in on Saturday during the city’s annual fair.
As for the mayor’s salary, a pet food store is donating a year’s supply of kibble to reward him for his service.
The village of Cormorant is located in Northwestern Minnesota.
At 7, Duke is far from the youngest recent mayor in Minnesota. Bobby Tufts won the post when he was just 3 years old. He was recently unseated by Eric Mueller, who is a well-seasoned 16 years old.
