From Local Sources
JASPER — Police placed a Pike County man under arrest after being called Sunday morning to the report of an intoxicated male who had entered the wrong room at a Jasper hotel.
Jasper Police Department officers responding to the 7:45 a.m. call to the SureStay Plus, 951 Wernsing Road, reported locating Risk B. Barr, 59, Petersburg, wearing only a towel with dried blood on the bridge of his nose.
Authorities were told that, earlier, around 5 a.m., an employee reportedly saw Barr naked and urinating on the floor in the hotel laundry room. At that time, authorities said, Barr was allegedly told to go to his room or police would be notified. His response was to allegedly tell staff to go ahead and call police.
Another witness subsequently reported that Barr, still naked, was seen progressing down a hotel hallway trying to open doors. He is alleged to have entered a room occupied by two juvenile females who called their father before Barr exited.
Authorities said Barr stated he did not know why he was naked or how the injury to his face occurred.
Barr was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:43 a.m. on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of residential entry and misdemeanor counts of public nudity, public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
