Brit arrested for making a scene at hotel lobby

By

MANILA, Philippines—A 60-year-old British subject who claimed he was “exhausted’’ was arrested for alarm and scandal for causing a scene at the lobby of the Manila Hotel Wednesday morning, police say.

Senior Police Officer 2 James Poso of the Manila Police District General Assignment Section identified the foreigner as David Pittman.

Poso said the hotel security sought police assistance when Pittman shouted and cursed other guests of the hotel at around 6 o’clock in the morning.

The policeman said Pittman took off his clothes while inside the detention cell and doused water on policemen escorting him to a toilet.

Poso said Pittman said he was “exhausted’’ when asked why he made a scene at hotel lobby.

He said Pittman made a scene after his companions left him at the hotel and asked him to pay for their bill.

       I’m a Kano been living here 7 yrs will gladly die here..some foreigners are a big embarrassment but I must say that when 1 Filipino goes to the USA and does something ignorant like this Brit did then some other ignorant Kano makes a post that casts all Filipinos as (dirty old men). Karamihan ay naghahanap ng good times , mga serial
      rapists, pedos, child molesters, sex deviants,  silahis, baklengs,
      transgens, it makes me even more embarrassed because I have met and know hundreds of Filipinos who are nothing like the one who acted so ignorantly at a hotel in the USA just to get out of paying the hotel bill

    British? What does that mean? Many a Filipino hold British passports and are actually ‘British’ by definition- was he English, Scottish or Welsh? There is a difference, anybody can become ’British’ but few can become English and all the rest—

    He deserves detention until he come to his senses. Looks like he didn’t know what he is doing. Detain him until the British ambassador arrange for his release and payment of his bill at the Manila hotel.

    Mga British na sira ulo. Manila hotel pa, ha? Wala naman palang pera;  dapat kay Rico J ibarkada ito. Sa Luneta. hr hr hr hr hr
