(Sept. 28, 2018) A night of drinking on Sept. 19 led to the arrest if a 50-year-old man accused of acting disorderly, according to the state district court.
Damon Andrew Lowell, 50, of Reston, Virginia, was charged with disorderly conduct, trespassing on private property, resisting or interfering with arrest, according to an arrest report from the District Court of Maryland.
Around 12:10 a.m. police went to the Stowaway Grand Hotel on 2100 Baltimore Avenue in reference to a disorderly man in the lobby. A hotel security guard said the “extremely intoxicated” man refused to pay his tab.
The man, later identified as Lowell, was seeing rolling around on the floor by the elevators, and had a cell phone charger, pizza box, a large amount of cash, and other items on the floor, according to the arrest report.
Lowell’s speech was slurred and he was mumbling, according to the report. He was also accused of making a woman uncomfortable who trying to get on the elevator.
The woman asked the officer if she could proceed to the elevator, and the officer allowed her.
“This is a white on white crime, don’t worry about it,” Lowell said.
Lowell then gave the officer his credit card for the approximately $150 bar tab. The security guard said he wanted to evict Lowell and give him a trespass citation based on his prior behavior, according to the report.
The officer made several attempts to tell Lowell to leave on his own, but he refused and sat on the floor.
Lowell was released on his own recognizance. His court appearance is Oct. 23 in courtroom one of the Worcester District Court in Ocean City.
