Texting your way into trouble

We can never get enough of the bizarre crimes Creative Loafing provides through “The Blotter,” which so often ventures into same-sex territory and proves we’re just as devious as everyone else.

Take this recent item:

A 21-year-old man from Cleveland stayed at a hotel on Techwood Drive — and said a hotel security guard sexually harassed him. He said the guard left a note on his car, asking him to call, and the note contained the guard’s phone number.

The 21-year-old man said he called the number, not thinking that the guard is a man — and the guard replied with this text message: “Waddup yo no disrespect to u but shit I was checking u out last night when u were in ur ride, if u don’t get down like dat, my bag, u can throw da # away.” The 21-year-old said he sent a message asking, “Who are you? You were the one working here?” and the guard said yes.

The 21-year-old said he told the guard that he didn’t get down like that — and the guard then asked if he had a woman. “The security guard then stated he had two females that they could get with, [but the 21-year-old man] declined,” an officer wrote. The man didn’t like the guard approaching him in this manner, so he filed a police report.
