A very wealthy lawyer ended up in jail after a rowdy weekend in Las Vegas caused $100,000 in damages to his luxury hotel suite.
The Encore Tower Suites at the Wynn in Las Vegas is suing Robert Pearman (45) to recover the money needed to repair the three bedroom, 5,829-square-foot hotel room.
Hotel security called the police after staff discovered the wrecked room. Officers went inside to find a heavily intoxicated Pearman partying with five women.
He immediately took responsibility for the damages.
“I take full responsibility for what happened here. We were partying,” he told the officers, slurring his speech.
“I did all of this. I am responsible for all of these people. Let my people go.”
The two-story duplex suite he ruined has a billiards room, a massage and exercise room and a hot tub. It also provides gorgeous views of Las
Vegas from 24 floors up that can be hidden or revealed with remote controlled curtains.
The police compared the inside of the suite after Pearman got through with it to the demolished hotel room in the first “Hangover” film.
Six lamps were cracked opened, furniture was lying on its side and there was broken glass and food remains everywhere. A very expensive decorative vase was broken, as well.
The hotel staff has estimated the cost of the damages (including labor) to be just over $96,000. The Encore offered to not press charges if Pearman paid up front, but the lawyer instead proceeded to berate the employees and even billionaire hotel owner Steve Wynn.
Pearman promised that he would take the discrepancy to court and “depose Steve Wynn and make this place Napalm.”
He was arrested on a charge of malicious destruction of property when he told the officers that he absolutely refused to pay for the damages.
Pearman’s Las Vegas lawyers are currently claiming that a “third party” had actually caused the damage.
