 A Fairfax man has been sentenced to 78 months in prison and three years of supervised release for assaulting federal police officers who tried to detain him for engaging in a public sexual act.

Jay Bonanza Briley, 52, was found naked and engaging in a sex act in the front seat of a vehicle parked at Daingerfield Island, near the Washington Sailing Marina, by U.S. Park Police officers the afternoon of Jan. 12, 2012.

The officers attempted to arrest him for disorderly conduct, but Briley refused to exit the vehicle.

He kicked one of the officers in the stomach and violently resisted the other officers as they tried to remove him from his vehicle, according to court documents. Once Briley was out of the vehicle, he attempted to run away, dragging two officers with him for several yards before they brought him to the ground.

Briley was found guilty of assaulting and resisting federal officers and disorderly conduct in a federal park on March 11 after a two-day jury trial. He was sentenced to 78 months in prison by District Judge Liam O’Grady Tuesday.

The FBI investigated this case.
