A woman was arrested following a bizarre incident at a hotel in southwest Colorado Springs Wednesday night, according to police.
Colorado Springs police said Erin Batiste was in a hotel lobby near the Broadmoor World Arena about 7:15 Wednesday night when she hit a child with a vase. According to police, Batiste then got in her car and started to ram parked cars in the hotel lot, including a car occupied by a family with a 3-year-old.
Batiste also threw eggs and bleach at hotel guests, before attempting to run over a hotel employee and guest, according to a CSPD report. She was eventually detained by citizens after she stopped the car. The car was later determined to be stolen.
Police say none of the victims knew Batiste, and she was not staying at the hotel. It’s unclear what caused the outburst.
