Police: Hard Rock Hotel Guest Used Ice Machine As Toilet

The thing about hotel rooms? They contain all the facilities people have at home — a bed for sleeping, a closet for your clothes, a bathroom with a sink, shower and toilet for hygiene maintenance — meaning you don’t need to go looking elsewhere when nature calls. Unfortunately for fellow guests at one Hard Rock Hotel, someone allegedly went rogue in that last area.

Police in Orlando say a 41-year-old tourist from England was caught urinating into an ice machine at the Hard Rock Hotel, reports the Orlando Sentinel, in the wee hours of the morning.

People in their right mind usually understand the convenience and joy of micturating in the proper place, making it no surprise that the arrest report indicated the man appeared “very intoxicated.”

A security guard approached the man and allegedly found him still at it, making the hotel ice machine’s contents yellow with his efforts. The guard called the police, who said the man had random outbursts and smelled of alcohol.

An officer told the man to stay in his room for the night instead of soiling everyone’s ice supply, but the report says the suspect refused. He was then arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in a public establishment and booked into the Orange County jail.

He pled guilty to the misdemeanor charge and spent a day in jail and is now on the hook for a $500 fine.
