Rear admiral fired after drunken nude walk at Ponte Vedra hotel



http://jacksonville.com/news/metro/2015-12-08/story/navy-fires-rear-admiral-after-inebriated-naked-walk-outside-ponte-vedra

According to the 20-page Navy investigation, Baucom was at a dinner with about 70 senior military officers and corporate executives and consumed all or part of a gin and tonic, wine and five scotches. The investigation stated that security camera footage showed Baucom falling as he stood up just after midnight, then hitting his head on a bar stool.

Another video camera recorded him stumbling and falling “head first” into a couch or a side table, then falling “to the ground,” the investigation stated. At 1:30 a.m. a bellman took Baucom to his room, calling him an “intoxicated older gentleman” in a statement to the hotel security department, the investigation stated.

Baucom showered, then took prescription medications. He told investigators he woke up later and went through a door, thinking it was to the bathroom. But it led outside, and the door locked behind him.

About 5:45 a.m. he ended up at the front desk.

“I’m looking for is something to cover up with,” he states in the investigative report. “So I’m looking for just something, if I can find a spare towel anywhere or something laying around so I can get to the lobby, get a key and get back to my room.”

-------

Well, damn. I've locked myself out of hotel rooms before, though not right after a shower. Sounds like he just got himself into an unfortunate situation.

Well, remind me to scratch the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club off of my list of preferred accommodations. I don't mind a front desk staff that's stuffy, but I certainly expect a little professional discretion on their part from time to time.

3. There doesn't seem to be any evidence he did it on purpose


Hotel staff should have immediately given him a robe, got him back where he belongs, and kept their mouths shut.

That moment of realization, that he'd locked himself out of the room, musta been something.

14. Lol, no, I meant to people generally


And that's what I always tell my wife when I call home from a trip - "What voice? Oh, her? She's just here to open the door in case I lock myself out."

16. I'm scratching the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club off of my list as well

He didn't commit a crime hurt anyone, except maybe his own self esteem.

They should just got him covered and back in his room.
