9-Oct-17 – A Philadelphia man is accused of trashing the 16th floor restaurant at Trump International Hotel & Tower last week, causing more than $14,000 in damage before hotel security could intervene, according to police.

Holdson Marcelin 36-year-old Holdson Marcelin (left) entered Sixteen at about 5:30 p.m. on October 2 and, say witnesses, immediately went on a rampage, “smashing glass, flipping tables, throwing chairs, pouring red wine on upholstery.”

He also broke signs before being detained by Trump Tower security. Video of the incident was captured on surveillance cameras and mobile phones.

Marcelin was in bond court the next day, charged with felony criminal damage, and released on his own recognizance.

Last March, a 30-year-old scam artist from Canton, Georgia, skipped out on a $1,838 bar tab at Sixteen. Robert Heath missed a March 17 court date and remains at large.
