Klamath Falls, Ore. – A Klamath Falls man is jailed after baring it all following an alleged disturbance over feeding tacos to dogs, and much of the bizarre incident was captured on video.

Ben Bliss said he heard his girlfriend and a stranger arguing at around noon on Friday. “I woke up to her arguing with the gentleman that decided to make a big old scene about feeding our dogs tacos.”

Ashley Layne said her boyfriend threw the man out of their yard – and then things got even stranger. “Oh gosh, I had no idea he was going to get naked like that – I thought he was stripping his shirt off to fight, maybe – but no – everything came off,” said Layne.

36-year-old Dustin Lee Rice ran into a mini market when confronted by police, where was eventually handcuffed and arrested.

“We don’t know exactly what the external factors were with this gentleman,” notes Captain Ryan Brosterhous of the Klamath Falls Police Department. “We took him for his own safety to be evaluated at the hospital, at which time he was released to the jail.”

Bliss says he’s never seen anything like it, “We found some beer bottles over there, but I know beer doesn’t do that to you.”

Ashley Layne said video of the incident has gone viral, “There’s 10,000 views on YouTube right now.”

Rice was booked on charges of disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. Dustin rice was arraigned on the charges Monday afternoon, and was released on his own recognizance.

As of noon Monday, the YouTube video of the incident had received 14,000 hits.
