Arrest follows hallway urination at Apple Valley hotel
Suspect found hiding in bathroom
A man who allegedly used an Apple Valley hotel’s hallway as a toilet was ticketed for public urination and arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Police say the 23-year-old Eagan man was intoxicated when he urinated in the third floor hallway of the GrandStay Hotel, 7083 153rd St. W., just before 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5.
The man was not a registered guest at the hotel but was there visiting someone who was, according to police.
In addition to the hallway floor, the man reportedly peed on one of the hotel’s housekeeping carts.
Apple Valley officers who were called to the scene knocked on the door of the third-floor room the suspect was believed to be visiting, the police report said. The woman who answered the door told officers the man they were looking for wasn’t in the room, but gave them permission to search.
Inside the room, police found the suspect hiding in the bathroom.
Officers issued the man a citation for public urination as well as a trespass notice barring him from the hotel. He was arrested and jailed on an outstanding Hennepin County warrant for DWI.
