MANASSAS, Va. (WUSA) — A naked man accused of assaulting a cleaning worker at a hotel was Tased and pepper sprayed, police said.

Langston Wayne Hunter, 37, of Gaithersburg, Md., attacked a 26-year-old woman when she was walking by his hotel room at the Holiday Inn at Balls Ford Rd. in Manassas, Thursday morning, police said.

The woman was trying to get cleaning supplies when he grabbed her, police said. Another worker heard the struggle and called police.

Police arrived shortly afterward to see Langston in his birthday suit, they said.

“The accused approached police completely nude and acting disorderly, ignoring officers commands. The accused resisted arrest causing officers to deploy a Taser and pepper spray to subdue him,” police said in a news release.

After Hunter gets out of the hospital, he faces abduction, assault and battery and resisting arrest charges, police said.

The hotel worker was not injured.

Re-enacting The Battle of Bull Run, 150th Anniversary, Manassas, VA | Event

(via @Wusa9)

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — The North thought it would deliver a crushing blow to the Rebel Army on its way to capturing the Confederate capital in Richmond. The South thought a decisive battle would prove to the North that the Union could not be kept together by force.

But the Battle of Bull Run, also called the Battle of Manassas, proved only to both sides that the Civil War would be a long, bloody affair. On Thursday, officials will mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War’s first major land battle with ceremonies at Manassas National Battlefield Park.

Thursday’s commemorations are the first in a weekend of activities surrounding the anniversary, culminating in a battle re-enactment this weekend on a nearby farm that could draw more than 100,000 spectators Saturday and Sunday.
