Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A Salem police officer was hospitalized after being assaulted by a nude man whom he was trying to take into custody.

Marion County Deputy Jim Herring was taken to Salem Hospital with injuries after the assault by 23-year-old Devon Poulsen, of Auburn, Wash., according to Deputy Kevin Rau, a spokesman for the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

According to police, Herring spotted Poulsen sitting naked on a Salem sidewalk on Thursday morning.

Herring called for more help, but Poulsen became violent, Rau said. Herring sprayed Poulsen with pepper spray, but Poulsen fought through it and struck the deputy several times in the face and head, police said.

Two more deputies eventually arrived and fired Poulsen with bean bags, then arrested him. Poulsen was also taken to Salem Hospital with minor injuries.

I dont typically see tweekers stripping down. People on PCP often feel very hot and will strip down. I find a naked person in the street its usually PCP, alcohol, or just plain crazy.
