Motel Tall Tale?

Motels and their guests can be the unfortunate victims of pranks from time to time. Our post HERE  covered a popular prank that had been performed at several accommodation properties in the USA last year.

We were amused to read the following news report from South Carolina that gives us a possible new version of the prank that incites a guest to smash up their motel room.
"A motel guest in Spartanburg has told sheriff's deputies that someone called his room and told him to smash the room to free a small person trapped next door. Spartanburg County sheriff's deputies say they responded to a motel Sunday night after a guest nearly punched through to the next room with a wrench.

Multiple media outlets reported a motel worker called deputies after she discovered the man had damaged the television, mirrors, and the wall between rooms.

The man told deputies a man who called his room about 11 p.m. Sunday said he was a manager at the motel. The guest told deputies the caller told him there was a 4-foot, 3 inch man trapped in the next room.

No charges have been filed."
