HUNTINGTON, WV -

A former West Virginia wrestling standout is facing multiple charges after officers found him naked in the middle of the road. 

Officers with the Huntington detachment of the West Virginia State Police tell 13 News Seth Easter, 23, of Nitro, was found naked in the middle of West Pea Ridge Road Wednesday night. Officers say a woman was driving by slowly when Easter jumped onto her car and grabbed a hold of her windshield wipers. 

When troopers tried to detain Easter he fought them and took off.  Troopers were able to catch up with him and he was arrested and taken into custody. 

Troopers say Easter admitted he had taken bath salts and other drugs. 

Sgt. G.N. Losh told 13 News, "This shows you the extremes people will go to when they are on drugs."

Easter is charged with indecent exposure, fleeing and battery of a police officer. 

Easter is a well-known wrestler, winning the 2008 WVSSAC AAA Outstanding Wrestler Award and later wrestling for Cornell University.
