TELLICO PLAINS (WATE) - A man claims he was under the influence of bath salts when he fought with officers and bit a Tennessee state trooper during an arrest.

A Monroe County sheriff's deputy and a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper were called just before noon Sunday to Hidden Lakes Campground, 1481 Belltown Rd. on the report of fights with one of campers.

When they arrived, they attempted to arrest Brody J. Dillon. 

A Monroe County Sheriff's Office report says Dillon put up a fight with the officers, attempting to bite and spit on them while he was being restrained.

Dillon was eventually put in the back of a Monroe County sheriff's cruiser in shackles and handcuffs.

After he was taken to the Monroe County Jail he continued to be combative and bit Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Brian Martin.

The report says Dillon appeared to be under the influence of one drug or several drugs.

Dillon later admitted he was under the influence of bath salts.

Campground owner Mark Ewes and other witnesses told officers Dillon had been attempting to pick fights with other campers most of the day.

Dillon is charged with several crimes, including assault, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest.
