Incident: Taking Chances with Desperate Advances
The pangs of desperation often stab sharpest during the wee creeping hours of the early morning, post-nightlife and pre-dawn. While the masses may hide away in tucked sheets, daring only to face their demons in deep sleep dreams, the truly tormented traverse the abandoned thoroughfares and howl at the moon in tongues. The moon is not known to be bothered by these momentary lapses of reason or sanity. Bleary eyed graveyard shift workers, however, are not always so sympathetic and are in fact more inclined to call the police.
Case in point: A woman working the front desk at a downtown Olympia hotel reported that a disheveled looking man in his mid-twenties entered the lobby just before 4 AM. After entering the building the man asked the woman if he could use the restroom, which she said would be fine. Before heading to the restroom, however, the man indicated that he needed to tie his shoe and sat down in a chair. Thinking nothing of it, the woman continued to work on the front desk computer. But, according to the woman, when she looked up from her work a moment later, “He had his penis out and asked (her) to ‘Blow (him).’”
Unpersuaded and aghast, the woman responded, “You need to put that away and get out now!” Disappointed the man again asked, “Come on, please?” Then, making a fool’s attempt at chivalry, the man stood up and walked behind the front desk and got on his knees before the woman and again pleaded to her, “Please, just suck it.”
The female employee then picked up the front desk phone and dialed 911, prompting the exposed and kneeling man to stand up and pull up his sweatpants while asking, “Why you gotta be a snitch?” He then promptly left the premises.
Responding officers noted that the man’s description matched that of a person they had written up for a violation of an exclusion order from downtown Olympia, just 30 minutes prior. While searching the immediate vicinity of the hotel, one officer spotted the suspect running down the street while holding his sweatpants up with one hand.
When stopped by police the man was immediately detained for again violating his preexisting exclusion order. According to the arresting officer, “During a search incident to arrest, a clear plastic baggy (was found), containing a green leafy substance which based on my training and experience, I believed to be marijuana.” When questioned about the exposure incident the suspect admitted to entering the hotel in order to contact the female employee at the front desk, but denied exhibiting his penis or propositioning the woman.
The suspect was arrested and booked at the OPD jail on one count of Violation of an Exclusion Order/Trespassing, one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession, and one count of Lewd Conduct.
