The 32-year-old man was taken into custody after the 3:24 a.m. Thursday incident, according to a Kenosha Police Department report. Police recommended charges of substantial battery intending bodily harm and bail jumping.

When police arrived, hotel staff called back saying that the security officer had been punched in the face and the naked man was being detained.

Earlier, the man had been observed running around and “acting bizarre,” according to the report.

According to the report, the security officer had a large gash on his face and hairline, along with cuts to his lips that were bleeding.

The man had cuts to his head and face and swollen eyes.

The man was taken to Froedtert Kenosha Hospital for treatment. The security officer drove himself to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries, according to the report.
