Kentucky man arrested for flooding hotel room and pulling alarm to evade police

FAIRFIELD, Ohio (FOX19) - A Kentucky man was arrested, Tuesday, for flooding his hotel room with hundreds of gallons of water and then pulled the fire alarm to try and get away from police.

Charles R. Weaver, 46, from Hindman, Kentucky, was arrested at the downtown Courtyard by Marriott.

A police report stated that water was coming out from under the door to Weaver's room and was leaking into rooms next door and into the lobby.

According the report Weaver was found laying in the water, naked and he was screaming that someone was trying to set him on fire.

Weaver also allegedly set off a fire alarm while trying to run away from the police, according to the report. He also allegedly broke a window because according to him, he was trying to get his sisters attention outside.

Police also report that they found 24 grams of cocaine wrapped in money, several bottles of alcohol and 1.8 ounces of marijuana in Weaver's room. Weaver apparently admitted that he had been doing drugs over the past couple days.

Weaver was charged with two counts of vandalism and drug abuse cocaine, all felonies, and misdemeanor charges of inducing panic and drug abuse marijuana.

Police say that about 30 upset people were in the lobby while they took him out.

Weaver's case will be continued at 8 a.m. on Monday, November 29.
