45-year-old Michael Hraber was found in the lobby of the Hilton downtown on 4th Ave just before 3 a.m. Wednesday. He was extremely intoxicated in the lobby and causing loud disruptions to everyone in the vicinity. Hraber was, indeed, staying at a Hilton property, as evidenced by the keycard in his hand, but it wasn’t THIS Hilton. The hotel staff could not determine which property he was registered at, and he was unable to tell officers and denied their assistance in using his phone to call someone to assist him. With all other options exhausted and his intoxication still at a high level, Hraber was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication.
