This Will Make You Think Twice Before Using the Hotel Ice Machine

Don't eat yellow ... ice? We all know the advice about snow, but now it seems that we need to apply the same rule when it comes to communal ice machines. It seems as though police caught a Florida tourist urinating into the ice machine at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando.


Everyone say it together, "Ewwwwwww!!!"

41-year-old guest Andrew Wood was vacationing from England when he was caught peeing into the hotel's ice machine in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Unsurprisingly, police report that he smelled of alcohol, and appeared "very intoxicated."

Um, yeah, because sober people usually prefer to use the toilets conveniently provided in their very own private hotel bathrooms.

The security guard who caught him in the act tried to find out what hotel room he was staying in, but that he became combative with "random outbursts." That's when the cops were called in, and he was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in a public establishment.  

Wood was booked into the Orange County jail, where he spent the day, and was ordered to pay a $500 fine.

Which I'm not sure is enough to replace the ice machine, frankly. Clean it, sure ... but would you want to get ice from a machine someone had peed in, no matter how clean they tried to get it?

Just ... gross.

Will you think twice before getting ice from the hotel ice machine again?
