A report of an unwanted person at the Baymont Inn on College Corner Pike brought police there March 19 after a manager, who had tried to make the non-paying woman in a third-floor room leave, had been pepper-sprayed, according to a police report.
Officers arrived at approximately 1:49 a.m. and were told the woman had walked toward Westgate Shopping Center. The hotel manager was dealing with pain and irritation in her eyes from the pepper spray. She said an employee had called her to tell of people in third-floor rooms which should all be empty.
She said when she arrived at the hotel after being called by an employee, she went to a third-floor room to find the woman lying on the floor in her bra and underwear and she woke her up to tell her to leave. The woman dressed and refused to reveal how she got into the rooms. The manager followed her out of the hotel to advise dispatch where she was but the woman pepper sprayed her and ran off throwing her bags down.
The woman was not found during a search of the area but a maroon NIKE gym bag was found to contain female clothing and several syringes. A black handbag with “Worst Behavior” printed on it contained toiletry items and a Daisy BB gun.
Police officers were given keys to third-floor hotel rooms and found an assortment of property in two of them. The manager said she wanted to proceed with charges against the woman and a warrant for assault was to be issued against her.
