A guest at Best Western on Tuesday was allegedly being unruly — messing with the hotel’s technology and throwing pizza at another guest’s door — and staff wanted her trespassed from the hotel, according to a police report.

The Denton Police Department responded to a disturbance at the hotel in the 2500 block of Brinker Road around 12:26 a.m. Staff called to report a 27-year-old guest was being unruly and that the hotel believed she was intoxicated. The report says the hotel claimed she went behind the front desk and was messing with a monitor and the credit card machine. When staff asked her to leave the hotel, she allegedly refused.

According to the report, another hotel guest spoke to officers and said the woman had been banging on his room door and others’ doors. He accused her of throwing a slice of pizza she had in her hand at his door after he closed it, splattering pizza sauce on it.

A friend of hers identified her to police and had called her a ride so she could leave, but she refused. The report says police tried multiple times to get her to leave, but she refused each time. Staff wanted her trespassed from the property, and they wanted to press charges, so she was arrested on a count of criminal trespass.

While police tried to handcuff her, she allegedly resisted by keeping her arms in front of her. Even after she was handcuffed, she was accused of refusing to get into a police car and then allegedly refused to get out of the car once at the city jail.

She also was charged with resisting arrest, search or transport.
