A rowdy hotel guest who whacked a Black Knight Inn employee with a metal pipe and forced another to jump down the laundry chute on Tuesday will have his day in court.

The suspect’s name, final charges and court appearance date are expected to be released on Wednesday, once the charges against him have been sworn before the courts.

Just before 9 a.m., Red Deer RCMP responded to call of a potential forcible confinement situation at the hotel on 2929 50th Ave. in Red Deer. About eight police cars responded, including dog services.

Police say a 30-year-old Edmonton man was extremely intoxicated and became aggressive with two male staff.

The suspect allegedly hit one man with a metal pipe and forced another to jump down the laundry chute from the second floor.

Both victims were treated for minor injuries at the hospital and have been released.

The suspect was arrested on the second floor. He is being held in custody.

He faces charges of aggravated assault, unlawful confinement and mischief over $5,000.

The suspect was staying at the hotel with several other people who were not involved with the incident.
