A manager at the Sheraton in Iowa City called police around 1:30 AM after Sierra Pippen drained the squirrel in the lobby of the hotel, which is a short walk from the campus of the University of Iowa, which Pippen attends.
A cop who later located Pippen noted that she smelled of booze and exhibited various signs of intoxication, including impaired speech and balance. Pippen declined field sobriety tests. The arresting officer also noted that she “accused me of being racist.”
Pippen was charged with public urination and public intoxication and was released from jail after posting $500 bond.
