LANCASTER, Pa. – A hotel and grocery store are assessing the damage after a naked man ran amok and allegedly did thousands of dollars’ worth of damage.

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

Some office space at the resort was trashed, and a forklift was driven into an interior wall, authorities said. Police said 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 and tossed a 300-pound pizza oven to the floor, as well as three scales.

Police charged Hadzick with risking a catastrophe, criminal mischief, open lewdness, public drunkenness and related counts.
