Man who stripped naked and stuck a fire extinguisher hose up his bottom in a hotel corridor walks free
The twenty-year-old also urinated on the Premier Inn floor and racially abused a staff member. He told the judge: “I really am truly ashamed of myself”
A man who appeared from the storage cupboard of a hotel naked with a fire extinguisher hose up his bottom, has walked free from court.
Joseph Small, 20, was on the fourth floor of the Premier Inn in London's Leicester Square when he stripped off, took the object, stuck the hose between his buttocks and started touching himself, Westminster Magistrates' Court heard.
He then urinated on the carpet and a lift door before being wrapped in a towel by a member of staff and taken to reception.
There, Small racially abused the man, who is originally from Bangladesh, telling him: “This country has been taken over by al-Qa'ida – go back to Pakistan.”
Small also urinated again in the lobby in front of other guests while shouting: “I come from Sheffield in England,” the court heard. When police arrived, Small also hurled abuse at the officers, referring to one as a “paedo”.
Prosecutor Darren Watts said: "The defendant could also be seen on CCTV placing a fire extinguisher hose inside his rectum and masturbating at the same time - Hassan [the hotel employee] went back to reception and called the police."
Speaking in court on Tuesday, Small said: “I really am truly ashamed of myself - I can't recall anything that happened and I'm sorry to anyone that I offended that night.
“I have friends from all different ethnic backgrounds. I'm truly ashamed of myself.”
He admitted charges of criminal damage to property under £5,000, racially aggravated harassment and outraging public decency. His actions caused £450 worth of damage at the hotel on 31 October.
Judge Elizabeth Roscoe sentenced Small to an electronic curfew between 10pm and 6am for five weeks, a nine-month supervision order and ordered him to pay a £745 fine.
