A patron of a Myrtle Beach gentleman’s club who authorities suspect was intoxicated was taken into custody on Monday for allegedly destroying a toilet in the establishment’s restroom, which caused structural and water damage.

On February 5, 20-year-old Pedro Alberto Bernar-Santiago was reportedly a customer at the Treasure Club, a strip club in South Carolina. At some point during his visit to the business, the man entered the restroom and kicked off the top of the toilet tank, breaking the structure that holds the plumbing and causing it to flood, according to a witness report.

The water overflowed out of the bathroom and gushed into the lobby of the speakeasy damaging the carpeting. Management estimated that the repairs to fix everything from the damages would cost a total of $4000.

WKU’s director of media relations Zach Greenwell reported that assistant men’s basketball coach Ben Hansbrough has resigned from his position on Monday to “pursue other opportunities.” Hansbrough spent two seasons as a support staffer with the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, and he was promoted to a full-time assistant coach this summer. His departure from the job followed his arrest on Saturday for allegedly driving under the influence.

Police responded to a report of a collision between Hansbrough’s car and a second automobile in the El Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant parking lot. According to the arrest report the second driver claimed he smelled alcohol on Hansbrough’s breath. When the officer asked if he had consumed any alcohol that night Hansbrough maintained that he had not had anything to drink since the previous evening.

The arrest report also stated that the officer administered a standard field sobriety test and Hansbrough allegedly showed indications of intoxication. He was taken into custody and the arresting officer claimed he could smell alcohol on his person as he put him into the police car.
