Last night, at 6:40 p.m., the Barrie Police Service was called to a hotel located on Bryne Drive with regards to an intoxicated male who was being disruptive in the lobby and being rude and disrespectful towards staff.

Upon arrival, it wasn’t too difficult to locate the 66-year-old disorderly hotel guest who was visibly intoxicated. Hotel staff had earlier requested that the guest leave and he refused. Police were concerned for his well-being and due to his intoxicated state, arrested him, and transported him to Barrie Police Headquarters where he was lodged and held until sober.

The male was charged with Fail to Leave when Directed, contrary to the Trespass to Property Act and Being intoxicated in a Public Place, contrary to the Liquor Licence and Control Act.

The Barrie Police Service is reminding the public that drunken and disorderly conduct in any hotel that is disruptive to staff and guests can result in removal, and failing to comply, can result in charges being laid in relation to the appropriate Provincial or Federal  Statutes. Codes of Conduct are strictly enforced, and the removal of this uncooperative hotel guest allowed the other guests to enjoy the quiet night that they reserved a reservation for.
