VERO BEACH – An employee with the Vero Beach Econo Lodge called law enforcement about a disruptive man on the property, according to the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies arrived and found Robert John Hyers, 36, screaming in the parking lot, drinking a Four Loko’s alcoholic beverage.

The Econo Lodge employee told deputies that when he asked the subject to “lower his voice,” Hyers “pointed his fingers into the shape of guns and said, ‘Bang. Bang. That’s for you, motherf***** for calling the cops,'” the affidavit said.

“[The employee] described Hyers as being, ‘drunk out of his gourd,'” the report said.

“This incident was the second of the evening involving Hyers causing a noise disturbance,” the deputy said.
