Man Arrested After Taking Hotel Cleaner’s Mop And ‘Aggressively Mopping Floor’
A 30-year-old man has been arrested after taking a mop off an employee at the Double Tree Hotel in Bristol and aggressively mopping the hotel floor.
John Thornton was in the Bristol hotel somewhere around 6.30pm on Monday when he spotted the cleaner who apparently failed to meet his cleanliness standards.
Once he spotted the woman was doing a lousy job, John grabbed her mop and became ‘aggressive’, according to the police.
He reportedly mopped over the woman’s shoes several times and forced her into a corner when she told him to stop cleaning, states the New Haven Register.
Police spokesperson Lt Donn Watson described the incident.
“(Thornton) then began to mop the floor but became more aggressive and mopped over the employee’s shoes several times. (He then) turned his back to the employee and forcibly backed into her pushing her into a corner.”
When police arrived at the hotel, the cleaning lady was very upset and wanted to press charges against Thornton. They arrested him and charged him with breach of peace. After threatening the police, Thornton was also charged with threatening in the second degree.
He was released after posting a $20,000 bail and is set to appear in court on October 27th.
