A man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly screamed and was pounding on walls at a local hotel.

On Thursday, March 10, 2022, the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office received multiple calls at the Sebastian Sands Hotel in reference to a man “yelling and screaming and pounding on the walls.”

“I was called and responded on four different occasions at 2110 hours, 2151 hours, 2225 hours, and later on March 11, 2022 at 0332 hours, each time by other guests and management to the defendant’s room,” the deputy said.

Each call was about a “breach of peace” as guests heard a man yelling at his girlfriend as he was “breaking things inside” their room. Guests next to the man said they listened to the man pounding on the walls for hours.

After being called for each disturbance, the deputy warned the man, later identified as 55-year-old Timothy Onell Christian. 

When the deputy arrived at 3:32 a.m., he “could hear the disturbance coming from the defendant’s room,” the affidavit said.

The deputy then arrested Christian, and he continued to “yell and scream in the hotel parking lot.” But it didn’t end there; Christian continued to yell and scream at the Indian River County Jail, where he spent the night.
