SANDUSKY, Ohio — A man has been charged after breaking a statute worth thousands and acting belligerently at Kalahari, according to a press release from the Erie County Sheriff's Office.

When officials arrived they saw a group of bystanders restraining Sean Miller, 32, of Oregon, Ohio. He was already handcuffed due to his 'turbulent behavior.'

One of the people holding him down told deputies that Miller was kicking and biting everyone.

Miller's wife told deputies they were at Kalahari for a conference, when he drank numerous alcoholic beverages and started to act belligerently.

His wife said she tried to calm him down, but he started to throw several chairs around and punching resort property.

Witnesses told deputies that they saw a broken TV monitor and a broken statue.

The witnesses called Kalahari security, who then handcuffed Miller.

Deputies said they found a statue that was broken into several pieces. Kalahari management said the statue was worth thousands.

The smashed TV monitor was valued at $300.

Miller was transported to Fireland Regional Medical Center and later released to the Erie County Jail.
