WARWICK, RI — When officer Thomas Greene arrived at Hilton Garden Inn, 1 Thurber St May 12 at 1:29 a.m. for a reported assault, he found the suspected NH man wandering the halls of the hotel without pants, yelling, as two staff members were trying to get him into his room.

Greene spoke with the man, a 31-year-old from Seabrook, NH, who was clearly intoxicated. In the process of helping the staffers, a man and a woman, get the man back to his room, Greene learned that the incident began when the woman, a security guard, had intervened in a fight between the NH man and another man in the hotel parking lot where he had been choking the other man, Greene reported.

The guard said the man had approached her in her truck and touched her breast. The guard told him not to touch her, and the male staffer joined her shortly after, helping her to escort the man to his room. At the door of the room,the man grabbed the guard’s pants and tried to put his hand inside her pants, the staffers said, according to Greene’s report.

During their interaction, the man repeatedly said to the guard, “I love you, baby,” and “But why, baby?”

When Greene attempted to talk with him, the man punched the male staffer in the arm, swore at him, and said, “I would never do that.”

Greene reported that the man did not seem able to speak in complete sentences, and was alternatively belligerent and apologetic.

Greene reported that the woman agreed to press charges. He arrested the NH man and transported him to Warwick Police Headquarters, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, charging him with simple assault, and disorderly conduct.

The man pleaded no contest to the charges, which were dismissed. He was sentenced to a one year filing, ordered not to trespass at the hotel except to collect his belongings, and was ordered to pay$96.75 in court costs.
