SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A Post Falls man’s quest for free Internet instead sent the police to his door.

KREM-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1LGKcJP ) that as the Post Falls Police Department was investigating a man who was using a hotel’s Wi-Fi without being a guest, they discovered there was a $25,000 warrant for his arrest.

Police say officers received a call about a man parked outside a hotel for an hour without coming inside. When officers approached the man, he told them he was using the hotel’s Internet. They discovered the warrant out of Kootenai County for a probation violation.

The man was taken into custody and booked into jail on the warrant.
