BRUNSWICK, Maine — A 29-year-old Brunswick man was taken into protective custody and hospitalized Friday night after Brunswick police found him in the bottom of a portable toilet on a disc golf course on River Road.

Officers responded to Enman Disc Golf just before 6 p.m. for a report that a naked male was causing a disturbance on the golf course, Deputy Police Chief Marc Hagan said today.

Initially, police could not locate the man, who witnesses said had been rolling in mud, tipping over trash cans and sitting in the disc goals.

After locating a backpack containing clothing, they called for a police canine to help search, but then found the man inside a portable toilet.

Hagan said the man did not respond to voice commands, but eventually Brunswick fire personnel were able to get him out of the toilet and into flexible handcuffs.

After he was sprayed down, he was taken to Mid Coast Hospital.
