FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) — Authorities in southeast Iowa say they're investigating why dozens of people at a campus that practices meditation allegedly attacked a county sheriff inside a car.

The Jefferson County Attorney's Office says a group of at least 70 people surrounded Sheriff Gregg Morton while he was in his marked patrol vehicle Tuesday morning at a pandit campus near Fairfield.

Morton says the group pushed the car back and forth and threw rocks at it. Morton and responding officers were not injured in the incident.

Authorities were assisting personnel in escorting a pandit leader off the property. The large group gathered as the leader was put into a van and driven away.

Morton says no charges are pending because he cannot identify who threw the rocks.
