TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A man has been arrested after a disturbance at Hotel Duval in Tallahassee on Sunday night.

The Tallahassee Police Department says the incident began when a man began harassing customers at the hotel bar. When the suspect was confronted by staff, he reportedly grabbed the employee's genitals.

Police say the suspect then removed his pants, took off running through the hotel, and pulled multiple fire alarms. Police say the suspect was wearing women's undergarments.

As officers searched the hotel for the suspect, police say he removed two fire extinguishers and sprayed multiple hotel patrons and an employee.

The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Ryan Campbell, of Crestview, was apprehended by police as he tried to flee the hotel.

Campbell was taken to the hospital for an evaluation. He was cleared from the hospital and booked into the Leon County Jail.

Campbell is charged with battery, grand theft of and tampering with a fire extinguisher, battery on an officer or EMT, and disorderly conduct.
