Trump Hotel Chicago

After they were cut off at the bar for appearing too drunk, a trio of suburban men turned on a stairway water valve in the posh Trump International Hotel & Tower, flooding two elevators and causing $700,000 in damage, prosecutors say.

Two 25-year-old suburban men, Carl Koenemann and Benjamin Nitch, were arrested Sunday night and charged Tuesday with felony criminal damage to property. CBS Chicago reports a third man, 24-year-old Daniel Maradei, was arrested Tuesday and also charged with felony criminal damage to property.

The men went to the 401 N. Wabash Ave. hotel’s bar just after 5 p.m. Saturday where they were served one round before the bartender refused them more drinks “because they appeared intoxicated,” Assistant State’s Attorney Erin Antonietti said according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
