Sony Interactive Entertainment America Inc.COLUMBIA, MD — Someone was rudely awakened while making love in a hotel room in Columbia on Sunday morning when a guest interrupted their fun.
That guest, however, wasn't a burglar. It was a Maryland State Police trooper who made an emergency call to 911 after the couple had an ugly fight, according to the hotel guest who spoke with WTOP.
"There was a very, very loud fight and I could hear somebody saying: 'Don't hurt her. I don't want to hurt you,'" said the witness, who asked to be identified only as Tom, a Columbia resident who said he and his girlfriend had been staying at the Howard Johnson Inn Columbia-Hagerstown in the 2100 block of South Broadway for a couple of days.
When Tom's girlfriend stormed out of the room, he went back to sleep while she grabbed her cellphone.
Once he was awake, he started thinking about why he had fled and started looking back at their trip.
"My first thought was that she had broke up with me again or something like that, which was a really bad time in the relationship, which is what had happened," Tom said.
He first learned there had been an argument when he saw his girlfriend throwing things onto the floor while he was making a morning call to a friend, Tom said.
When he saw her yelling, he got up to see what was wrong.
"She had a towel around her waist and she was screaming and yelling at somebody," he said, adding that he saw his girlfriend hitting a man.
Telling his girlfriend that he was leaving, he went downstairs to use the bathroom.
"I heard more yelling. She was just screaming," Tom said.
He soon saw his girlfriend in her jeans and a T-shirt, running back to the room to check on a man, whom she was accusing of assaulting her.
Tom said that man, who was with his boyfriend, was also trying to calm her down.
"She had a red mark on her left eye. She was really distraught," Tom said.
He saw her grab a man by the hair and hit him on the forehead.
"I just remember thinking: 'Don't hurt him, don't hurt him.' I was trying to call 911," he said.
