A man became very angry after the pizza he had ordered had not arrived. He decided to trash the hotel room he was staying at, according to police reports.

A Mentor, Ohio, man is accused of trashing the hotel room at America’s Best Value. Mentor police believe that it was caused because he could not get the pizza delivered to him.

Police were called at 1:30 a.m. on Friday, to the America’s Best Value hotel because one of the rooms had been flooded and water was leaking out from the room.

Police arrived to find the room with the leak had been destroyed, according to a hotel clerk. In addition to three inches of water in the room, they found multiple holes in the walls, the lamps had been broken, and the bed had been ripped and thrown across the room.

Daniel J. DiFranco Jr., 37, of Mentor, was the guest registered to the room at that time. He told police that he was upset when he could not get pizza delivered to the room.

Police charged him with vandalism. Police estimate the damage at about $5,000.
