Australian man arrested in Indonesia says he felt almost possessed during naked rampage

Bodhi Mani Risby-Jones says he was not himself and felt "almost possessed" during an alleged drunken naked rampage that led to his arrest on an Indonesian island.

The 23-year-old Australian faces up to five years in jail if convicted over the alleged incident on Thursday on Simeulue, within the conservative Aceh province off the coast of Sumatra.

Risby-Jones allegedly emerged without any clothes from Moon Beach Resort and proceeded to chase and strike people on the main village road, according to the Aceh media outlet Bithe.

Shortly before 1am the Noosa man abused a fisherman from the village of Lantik, who suffered serious injuries requiring more than 50 stitches on his heel as well as fractures, Indonesian police told the publication in a written statement.

Supt Jamitko also alleged that Risby-Jones hit a security guard before he left his resort.

"He was enraged. He caused a scene. He hit a security guard and walked out of the resort and ran amok every motorbike rider he encountered," Jamitko said.

Jamitko said the fisherman's injuries were a result of Risby-Jones striking him as he passed by on his motorbike, and throwing the motorcycle on to him after he fell into the gutter, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
