Watson told police “he has been in Pittsburgh for over a month and sleeps wherever he can locate somewhere comfortable to rest his head,” Richard said.
There aren’t too many places more comfortable than Watson’s chosen location. The 16th-floor suite features a 1,300-square-foot parlor plus three bedrooms, and includes crystal chandeliers, a dining room, grand piano, a full kitchenette, wet bar and sitting room, according to the hotel’s website. The site doesn’t make clear how much the room costs.
Police took Watson to the Allegheny County Jail, where he remained Wednesday unable to post $15,000 bond. He faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 19 on charges of criminal trespass and theft of services, according to online court records, which didn’t list an attorney for him.
Richard said police don’t know how long Watson had been in the suite or how he got in.
