A man has been arrested after running around a hotel in Georgia naked, attacking guests and a police officer, officials say.

Acworth Police said a welfare check officer went to Deerfield Lodge on Dec. 18 and was told that a naked man ran around the hotel screaming. The officer learned that the man had assaulted several hotel guests.

When the officer found the suspect, the naked man began fighting with the officer, punching him and trying to choke him, according to a Dec. 22 Facebook post from the police department. Other officers arrived at the scene and were also attacked by the suspect, police said.

Police said they tried to calm the man down, but EMS had to sedate him when they arrived.

The man was taken to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on Dec. 20 after being treated at Kenneston Hospital, police said. He is charged with aggravated assault, battery, aggravated robbery, obstructing law enforcement and second-degree criminal damage.

Several people, including a police officer, were injured during the incident, but all were treated and released, police said.

The incident is under investigation.

Acworth is about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta.
