Police say 38-year-old James Moore was asked to leave by the restaurant manager because of his strange behavior.

Police say Moore was sitting alone in a booth sweating profusely and mumbling to himself. He then reportedly took off his shirt and began to swing it over his head.

Police were able to pull Moore from the booth and handcuff him.

Moore is facing charges for criminal trespass and resisting arrest.
