Burning up: Man set Hotel 81 towels on fire after staff said he could not join his male friend and woman in room

SINGAPORE - A man was sentenced to three months jail on Wednesday (April 21) for setting fire to towels in a hotel after staff told him he had to leave the room occupied by his male friend and a woman they had just met at a karaoke lounge. Lau Sheng Shiun, who was from the Republic of Singapore Navy, had faced trial and was convicted last month of mischief by fire with intent to cause damage. The incident happened on Sept 12, 2017. The 34-year-old had met up with Chua Wen Hao, 29, his friend and subordinate in the Navy, before heading to the W KTV lounge at Foch Road at Jalan Besar. They had a few drinks there and met a Vietnamese girl. The men later decided to head to Hotel 81 Violet nearby, and checked in at the front desk at about 9.20pm. Shortly after, the hotel staff spotted through the security cameras that three of them had entered the room, in breach of its policy of disallowing more than two people in a room. When the staff informed them that they were in breach of the policy, Lau left the hotel through a backdoor.
