Windows smashed at hotel: A 26-year-old Maple Heights woman was charged with fifth-degree felony vandalism and misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, obstructing official business and disorderly conduct while intoxicated after police responded to a report of the sounds of a woman screaming and glass shattering at a Highland Road hotel at around 5:30 a.m. Nov. 17.

Police said when they arrived, they saw the Maple Heights woman outside a room screaming and banging on the door. A man and two women inside the room told police the four of them had arrived at the hotel together, but the Maple Heights woman had been drinking and started misbehaving, so they locked her out of the room.

Police said the woman allegedly smashed some double-pane windows, with the damage estimated at $2,000. The woman also allegedly tried to kick and pull away from officers when they were arresting her and she repeatedly refused to identify herself, police said. She was taken to Macedonia City Jail.
