A man is accused of trashing a hotel room in Mentor because he couldn't get a pizza delivered to it.
Mentor Police received a call at about 1:30 a.m. Friday from America's Best Value Hotel because one of the rooms had flooded and the water was seeping out, Mentor Police Lt. Ken Zbiegien said.
When police arrived, they found the water damage was just the beginning.
"The room was obliterated, more than $5,000 worth of damage," Zbiegien said.
There were two to three inches of standing water in the room, holes hand been knocked into the wall and the bed had been disassembled and its parts strewn around the room, Zbiegien said.
"Anything that could be destroyed was destroyed," Zbiegien said.
Daniel DiFranco, 37, from Willoughby, had been staying in the room. He told police that he trashed the room because he became upset when he couldn't get a pizza delivered.
DiFranco was arrested and charged with a felony count of vandalism.
