A maintenance worker reported that a guest who had pulled the fire alarm earlier that morning was back at the hotel, charging documents say.

The 35-year-old man was sitting in the lobby and told police he had been staying at the hotel with his wife.

He became suspicious his wife was having an affair, so he pulled the fire alarm to get her out of the room, police said.

The man is charged with misdemeanors of false alarm and disorderly conduct, according to court records.
