Iowa man arrested after spending hours in the shower at Indiana truck stop


PLYMOUTH, Ind. — An Iowa man was arrested at a northern Indiana truck stop after police say he overstayed his welcome in the shower area.

Police in Plymouth were called to the Love’s truck stop at 2952 Gary Drive at 2:12 a.m. Thursday.

Employees told them a man refused to leave his shower stall after his paid time had run out. Officers say they were told the man had been in the shower room for more than four hours and refused to open the door.

I gotta be honest... as a truck driver myself I didn't know there was such thing as a time limit for a shower... especially at 2am...the dead time as everyone knows

Maybe he thought he had rented a room for the night, at least he was clean for his night in jail!

Just turn the water off. It's people like this that cause problems for most people. You had your time now move on. Probably some homeless bum trying to consume as much as they can like they always do.
