If someone is arrested for smoking drugs in a hotel room what happens? 4 Answers as of August 20, 2015What will happen to my son if the police caught him in Bend? Last week, my son was arrested after police were called because he was caught smoking methamphetamine in a hotel room. After the police arrived, marijuana was found in his possession.

He will most likely be charged. If meth is involved, he will probably be charged with a felony. In addition to criminal charges, the hotel can sue him civilly for any damages the hotel sustained as a result of his illegal activities. These damages could be substantial, especially if meth was present and the room has to be de-contaminated... charges for repairs and lost income from not being able to make the room available for guests. Lots of potential problems. I suggest that he get himself an attorney.
