Jacksonville Hotel Drying Out After Guest Causes Flooding

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  The Jaguars big win on Sunday may have indirectly caused some big losses for a Southbank hotel. The Hilton Garden Inn is closed due to flooding and a guest is to blame.

Crews tasked with sopping up the water said an unhappy Colts fan took out his frustrations on the hotel.

It was a kick that brought joy to the hearts of Jags fans everywhere on Sunday and dowsed the hopes of the normally division-leading Colts, but it may have drenched more than hopes.

The Hilton Garden Inn on Jacksonville's Southbank is drying out tonight after a Colts fan took out his frustrations with a torrent of water.

The signs on the Hilton doors say no reservations or walk-ins.  The hotel had to be evacuated early Monday morning after several floors were flooded. 

Cleaning crews and their equipment have been working hard to dry out the hotel.
