A woman charged with being drunk and disorderly in a hotel pool claims the manager called the police because she was “jealous over her bikini body”.
Officers were called to the Country Inn and Suites in Ocala, Florida after 42-year-old Melody Carr was observed lounging by the pool in her two-piece swimsuit.
The manager of the motel called the police, reporting that Carr “was causing a disturbance”, but Carr claimed she was motivated by jealousy to call the authorities, DailyMail.com reports.
A police officer who responded to the scene spoke to the manager, who told him that she did not recall checking Carr into the motel or having her as a guest.
According to the manager, when she approached Carr and asked her what room she was staying in, the 42-year-old “became very irate” and refused to give her room number before walking away.
The motel manager told police she wanted Carr cited for trespassing, according to legal documents.
When the responding officer located Carr she became “verbally aggressive,” insisted she was not doing anything wrong, and told the cop to leave her alone.
Carr claimed that her boyfriend was staying at the hotel but they got into a fight and he stormed off. She said she was only still at the property because her car was not working properly.
After she was instructed to move her vehicle Carr jumped a fence to get to her car and burned tires as she pulled into a parking spot at a nearby petrol station, according to the document.
Carr then went into the gas station to talk to a manager about keeping her car there until it could be repaired, but her request was denied, and she got angry and left.https://get-latest.convrse.media/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailystar.co.uk%2Fnews%2Fworld-news%2Fdrunk-woman-kicked-out-hotel-24118974&cre=bottom&cip=22&view=web
The police officer noticed Carr’s breathe smelled of alcohol and was placed in handcuffs.
Carr allegedly admitted to having one drink at 9am at the hotel but could not explain why she still smelled of alcohol and appeared visibly drunk eight hours later.
She was arrested and booked into the Marion County jail on charges of disorderly intoxication. She was released the next day after posting $2,000 (£1,400) bond.
Carr is due back in court for an arraignment on Monday.
Court records indicate that she was arrested in 2010 on a domestic battery charge, which was later dropped.
