John Thornton was recently arrested at the Double Tree Hotel in Bristol, Conn., for “aggressive mopping.”

Thornton reportedly took a mop from a 27-year-old female employee and started mopping the floor in his hotel room at about 6:30 p.m. on Monday.

"[Thornton] then began to mop the floor, but became more aggressive and mopped over the employee's shoes several times," stated Bristol Police spokesman Lt. Donn Watson, according to The Independent. "[He then] turned his back to the employee and forcibly backed into her pushing her into a corner."

After the police showed up, they found the female employee shaken and crying. Thornton was charged with second-degree breach of peace, reports WFSB.
