Wearing Only Underwear, Man Causes Disturbance at Buford Hotel

Told police he woke up in the woods, set his clothes on fire and walked to the hotel.

A Buford man had more questions than answers for the police officers attempting to determine how he ended up in a hotel lobby nearly naked and bleeding from several scratches and cuts.

Gwinnett County Police were dispatched to the Holiday Inn Express on Satellite Boulevard just before 4 a.m. on Nov. 29 after a frightened clerk called 911 for help.

According to the police report, the clerk heard a knock on the locked front door of the hotel at approximately 3:15 a.m.

By the time the clerk reached the door, which can only be accessed by key-holding guests during the overnight hours, there was no one to be seen.

The clerk returned to her office and a few minutes later observed motion on the security camera. The video feed showed a male attempting to climb over the front desk counter.

The clerk went to the lobby and asked the man what he was doing. The man reportedly said he was a hotel guest and had lost his key. When the clerk questioned him further, the man admitted lying and asked if he could take a shower. The clerk told him he could not.

According to the police report, the man then asked the clerk to call a taxi for him. The woman instead called police, later saying she was “terrified” during the encounter because she did not know the man’s intent.

When police arrived, they found Jacob Brothers, 22, of Buford, standing in the hotel lobby wearing nothing but his underwear.

Brothers reportedly would not provide his name or date of birth and was unable to explain how he got to the Holiday Inn Express.

“While speaking with [Brothers], I observed that he was very pale and his face was flush (sic). Furthermore, I observed that the white male would randomly become irate for no apparent reason,” the officer wrote in the arrest report.

The officer noted that Brothers responded to officers’ questions by yelling statements such as “Where the [expletive deleted] am I?”, “Where the [expletive deleted] is my daughter?” and “You better [expletive deleted] tell me.”
