EPD responds to reports of a naked man at an east side hotel

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A man is in the hospital after police found him naked in the ceiling of a hotel on Saturday.

Police arrived at the Hampton Inn on Evansville's east side after a naked man reportedly went in a second story window of the hotel.

Once inside, he went in several different rooms and locked a housekeeper in one of them.

Police searched the hotel and found a vending room on the fifth floor that had an ice maker blocking the door. After forcing entry, they found the ceiling was busted out.

Police found the suspect in the ceiling and had to help him get down. He was still naked and talking nonsense.

Police believe he was on some sort of drugs and was taken to Saint Mary's Hospital.
