LANCASTER, Pa. – A hotel and store in Lancaster County are assessing the damage after a naked man ran amok and allegedly did thousands of dollars worth of damage to two businesses.
West Lampeter Township police said 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, authorities said.
Police said the man, whom they identified as Nicholas Hadzick, 28, of Freeland, then crossed the street and entered Darrenkamp's in the Willow Valley Shopping Center, causing more destruction.
Joe Darrenkamp, company president, said Hadzick threw chairs, tossed a 300-pound pizza oven to the floor, as well as three scales, valued at about $7,000 each. Also damaged was a $90,000 meat-wrapping machine, several soda coolers and the windshield of a delivery truck.
The incident was captured on the market's surveillance cameras, Darrenkamp said. He estimated the cost of the damage at about $40,000.
Police charged Hadzick with risking a catastrophe, criminal mischief, open lewdness, public drunkenness and related counts. He was being held in Lancaster County Prison on $200,000 bail.
Hadzick had been a guest at the resort, said Blaise Holzbauer, Willow Valley executive vice president and general manager.
Telephone messages left at three phone listings for a Nicholas Hadzick in the Freeland area were not returned.
