A hotel and store in Lancaster County are assessing the damage after a naked man ran amok and allegedly did tens of thousands worth of damage to two businesses.

West Lampeter Township police say they were dispatched to the Willow Valley Resort, and later Darrenkamp's Market, on Friday amid reports of a naked man on a rampage.

Some office space at the resort was trashed and a forklift was driven into an interior wall, also damaging an overhead sewer pipe.

A 300-pound pizza oven at the market was thrown to the floor, as well as three scales, valued at about $7,000 each. A market official says a $90,000 meat-wrapping machine, several soda coolers and the windshield of a delivery truck also were damaged.

Police charged the man, whom they identified as 28-year-old Nicholas Hadzick, with risking a catastrophe, criminal mischief, open lewdness and related counts. He was being held in Lancaster County Prison on $200,000 bail.
