Police said the guest woke up and found Neal sucking on his toes. The guest confronted Neal and immediately recognized him as the person who had come into his room the day before with another employee to look into an issue he was having with his TV.

Officers said they were called to the hotel and they spoke with Neal, who admitted to entering the guest’s room. However, he claimed he smelled smoke and wanted to check on the alleged victim, according to police.

Neal didn’t report the smell of smoke to security, and there were no other reports about a smell of smoke in the hotel, an investigation determined.

Investigators said the room key was not recovered and Neal claimed he threw the key away.
