Millionaire allegedly walked nude in hotel

NEW YORK, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Police in New York said a millionaire spice importer was taken to a psychiatric ward after drunkenly parading nude through an upscale hotel's workout facility.

Investigators said the Four Seasons hotel received several complaints from guests about Dhiraj Arora running nude through the workout facility around 11 a.m. on Sept. 23. He refused to emerge from his room until officers threatened to break down the door, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Police escorted Arora to a nearby hospital psych ward, and he was released about two hours later. No charges were filed against the wholesaler, who provides imported spices to stores including Whole Foods.

Arora said he was neither drunk nor nude in the workout area, but he did disrobe in the steam room.

"I don't run around places naked, and I sure as hell was not running around naked at the Four Seasons hotel," he said.

"All I can tell you is there must have been some guests at the hotel who must have been uncomfortable with my North Indian heritage," Arora said. "The way I carry myself, the way I roll. I don't cut my hair. I don't shave every day."
