Officers who responded to the noise complaint that led to Roger Creager’s arrest on Friday found women hiding in the bathroom of two hotel rooms rented by the country singer, police said this week.

Detailing the chronology of the night’s events for the first time, police reports state that officers Jesse Saavedra, Dustin Slaughter and Grant Sheridan were called to LaQuinta Inn on the interstate access road at about 2 a.m. about a loud part in Room 125.

At the hotel, they found Creager inside the room and identified him as the room’s occupant. The 36-year-old entertainer, who had played Gordo’s on the Square hours earlier, gave officers permission to “check” the room where they found a 19-year-old woman hiding, the report states.

The woman told officers that the party she had been drinking at a party that had since moved to Room 129. There the officers found Creager’s lead guitarist Kenneth Reynolds, 42, and searched the room with his permission, the report states. They found women younger than 21 years old in the bathroom and four of them admitted to drinking at the party.

Creager, Reynolds and Brent McLennan, 26, were arrested on Class A Misdmeanor charges of furnishing alcohol to minors. All three pled not guilty and Creager’s agent this weekend, Matt Peveto, said the singer maintains his innocence but declined to discuss the arrest.
