Watercooler Talk
ALBION, Mich. (AP) — Authorities said an overnight hotel guest who claimed a divine calling has been jailed after shooting up his room and placing an alarm clock in the microwave. Police say the 53-year-old Dearborn Heights man surrendered about 8:30 a.m. Sunday at the Albion Inn, about 85 miles west of Detroit. He was being held in the Calhoun County Jail pending arraignment and mental evaluation.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot said the man shot the bed, window, walls and ceiling of his room, where he left a note that read: “God delivered me from evil and placed me in Albion, Michigan.”

No injuries were reported. The man’s name was not released.
