Usually hotels get peeved when you steal their towels -- but management at The Townsend Hotel, in Birmingham, Mich, is fuming that a guest wasn't wearing a towel.
Joe Qatato, an equipment manager for the Indiana Pacers who lost the same night, was, errrr, handling his equipment, fully naked, in front of an upper-floor window on Tuesday, according to TheIndyChannel.com
Qatato is expected to appear at a Birmingham court to face a misdemeanor charge June 23.
Qatato is supposedly a close friend of Larry Bird, who brought the flasher on board with the Pacers during his coaching tenure.
"After the outcome of the court date, the matter will be handled internally. We will not comment further," a spokesman for the Pacers said.
Uh huh huh. He said "handled."
