MEMPHIS, TN - (WMC) – Security has increased at the National Civil Rights Museum after police found a smashed window and a man sleeping in a room at the Lorraine Motel. The break in call came into police a little after 1 Wednesday morning. Security officers heard a window break and went to check out the area. That's when they noticed the windows to rooms 307 and 308 were broken. Both rooms are on the second floor of the Lorraine Motel. Security officers called Memphis Police Department. MPD officers quickly arrived on scene and found 33-year-old Dexter Anderson lying in the bed asleep in room 308. The room was just a few doors down from Room 306 where Dr. Martin Luther King Junior stayed the day he died. Anderson was taken into custody. He is charged with vandalism over $500 and criminal trespassing. Police say Anderson broke the windows by throwing a rock into both rooms. Police searched the room for other damage, but none has been reported. Security officers are now keeping a closer watch on the room until it the window is repaired.
I couldn't help thinking about this scene from School Daze!
