Police were called to a local hotel because a man was extremely intoxicated, naked and possibly suicidal.
The staff said the man had been staying in the hotel for several months. They said he got drunk the night before and caused a disturbance. When employees tried to call his room the next morning he ignored their calls.
The manager was concerned and asked the officer to check on the man.
They knocked on the door and the naked, drunk man invited the officer in.
There were 22 bottles of wine. Twenty were empty, one was half full and the other was unopened.
He appeared highly intoxicated according to the report. The officer asked him if he wanted to hurt himself or others and he said no, that he just wanted someone to talk to. Then he said he wanted to blow his brains out and he wanted to drink himself to death. EMS arrived and took him in for an evaluation.
