LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — A Lehigh Acres man was arrested for pounding on house doors naked and hitting a deputy in the face.

Lee County deputies say Alonso Sanchez, 21, was pounding on people's doors early Tuesday morning in the area of Arthur Avenue while he was naked.

When deputies arrived Sanchez was in the middle of road and a car had to swerve to avoid hitting him. After running off, deputies found him screaming, hugging, and hip thrusting a tree. As they attempted to take him into custody, he struck a deputy in the face.

Deputies say Sanchez was transported to Lehigh Acres Regional Hospital for having drugs in his system. He is facing charges of battery on a law enforcement officer.

The deputy received minor injuries.
