Romantic adventure leaves motel all wet

GALVESTON - A man and a woman were in jail Saturday on charges that their romantic adventure flooded several rooms at an island motel.

According to a police report, officers were called to the Comfort Inn in the 100 block of Seawall Boulevard just before 11 p.m. Friday. Officers said the hotel's sprinkler system had broken, flooding at least eight rooms and causing an estimated $15,000 in damage.

Police said a search of the room with the broken pipe turned up drug paraphernalia and a number of sex toys.

"At first, they both denied knowing anything about the damage, but they couldn't get around the fact that their room was filled with sex toys," said Bret Griffin, an assistant district attorney.

Griffin said the couple eventually admitted tying a rope around the man's neck and attaching it to the sprinkler system.

"They thought the pipe would support the man's weight," Griffin said. "That proved to be wrong."

The 45-year-old Arcadia man was held on $3,500 bond Saturday afternoon on charges of criminal mischief and possession of marijuana. His companion, a 35-year-old Santa Fe woman, was held on $2,000 bond on a charge of criminal mischief.
