Interesting side-note shown in this video: those ‘single’ windows on the building are actually two floors worth. A conscious decision by many buildings in the city to give the illusion that they’re both smaller and closer by. A mistake some will regret if they decide to hoof it from one casino to another ‘nearby’.
Man, those little mini cans of Pringles in the minibar cost an arm and a leg, I can’t imagine what they will charge for chucking out all the furniture.
"Watch as Las Vegas Law enforcement, including the SWAT team, responded to a barricade "
Seems like he wasn’t left with much of a barricade for them to respond to.
Man, you’re not kidding. Was just there a couple weeks ago and decided to walk from Harrah’s to Aria which is only “two blocks away”.
5 escalators, 3 bridges, a shopping mall and 1.5 miles later I arrived for my business dinner nice and sweaty.
Everything is super far.
I was in Vegas the last time in Feb (lovely weather, thankfully) meeting up with friends.
Sat night I met a couple of them for dinner at the MGM. I was staying at the Park across the street.
Took me about a half hour to get to the restaurant.
I like the monorail on the east side of the strip and the Park tram that goes back and forth to the Bellagio.
Channeling his inner Keith Moon? (Obviously, not the hostage part, though.)
Also - odd (but typical?) reaction…
Let’s stand here filming this shit and chatting about it perfectly casually but the moment an officer arrives to say ‘leave’ it’s a case of ‘OHMYGOD GOGOGO’ panic.
Man, those little mini cans of Pringles in the minibar cost an arm and a leg…
Nah, I blame the dang resort fees for this outrage. (/s)
At least where he is going, he doesn’t have to contend with “resort fees” (yet.)
I really doubt that. Maybe physically, but this sounds terrifying. I’m not sure why most of the comments here are making light of it, either.
They’re men? Men who didn’t really think about it
Good thing he wasn’t armed and shooting at people, otherwise it would have been ages before the cops went in.
Been there. Done that. Chose not to buy the t-shirt (luckily I had spares to replace my sweat sodden one).
I don’t get that either. This woman was trapped in a hotel room on the 21st floor with a man who forced her in the room, broke the window out, and then proceeded to start throwing furniture out the window. She must have been terrified that she was next. I’ll joke about billionaires in a submersible, but there isn’t anything funny here.
