26-year-old Matthew Bain was inside his room at the Super 8 on Bell Road on Christmas Day when he called police to report that someone was sawing his door off the hinges. Officers responded to find no signs of any forced entry or foul play at the location. Bain then told officers how “Lit” he was, but was sad that he flushed the remainder of his drugs down the toilet when he believed someone was cutting off the things to come into his hotel room. With no drugs and no crime, officers cleared the parking lot and scene.
As they were preparing to leave, Bain began running down the sidewalk and into the middle of the road to stop them from leaving. He wanted to again tell them how “LIT” he was while sweating profusely and blocking their patrol cars from moving. He revised to move out of the way, so he was taken to jail and charged with public intoxication. His case was dismissed after the standard 8-hour hold.
ARREST WARRANT / AFFIDAVIT: OFFICERS WERE DISPATCHED TO 1121 BELL ROAD, SUPER 8 HOTEL, ROOM 328 AS THE DEFENDANT, MR. BAIN, BELIEVED SOMEONE WAS ATTEMPTING TO SAW HIS FRONT DOOR OFF OF THE HINGES. WHEN OFFICERS ARRIVED, NO DAMAGE WAS FOUND ON THE DEFENDANT’S DOOR NOR WAS THERE ANY SIGN OF FOUL PLAY OR FORCED ENTRY.
THE DEFENDANT THEN WENT ON TO TELL OFFICERS HOW HIGH AND “LIT” HE WAS AND WHEN HE HEARD SOMEONE CUTTING HIS HOTEL ROOM’S FRONT DOOR OFF, HE FLUSHED THE REMAINDER OF HIS DRUGS DOWN THE TOILET.
AS OFFICERS ATTEMPTED TO LEAVE THE SCENE OF THE FALSE CALL, THE DEFENDANT CONTINUED TO FOLLOW OFFICERS AROUND THE HOTEL’S PARKING LOT EVEN THOUGH OFFICERS TOLD HIM MULTIPLE TIMES TO STOP. AFTER OFFICERS WERE FINALLY ABLE TO SAFELY CLEAR THE HOTEL’S PARKING LOT, THE DEFENDANT BEGAN RUNNING DOWN THE SIDEWALK AND WALKED INTO THE MIDDLE OF CANE RIDGE ROAD TO PREVENT OFFICERS FROM LEAVING THE AREA. WHEN OFFICERS MADE CONTACT WITH THE DEFENDANT NOW A SECOND TIME, THE DEFENDANT AGAIN ADMITTED TO OFFICERS HOW “LIT” HE WAS AND THE DEFENDANT ALSO BEGAN TO SWEAT PROFUSELY, RAMBLED WITHOUT SENSE, AND HE HAD A HARD TIME FOCUSING ON QUESTIONS ASKED BY OFFICERS. WHEN TOLD TO MOVE OUT OF THE ROADWAY THE DEFENDANT REFUSED SO HE WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY FOR HIS OWN SAFETY.
