CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 13 (UPI) -- A man caused more than $2,000 in damage to a Charlotte, N.C., hotel after discovering he had run out of toilet paper in his room, police say.

Police say between late Sunday and early Monday at the Charlottetown Manor, Dereck MacDonald, 43, became very upset upon discovering he ran out of toilet paper, The Charlotte Observer reported.

MacDonald allegedly walked into a vacant room at the hotel and clogged the toilet, causing water damage to the room, a police report states.

"The suspect then went back to his room and damaged additional property by physical force," the report says.

MacDonald reportedly caused more than $2,000 in damage in the two rooms combined.

Police arrested the man and charged him with injury to personal property.
