Virginia Man Charged In Vaseline Vandalism Case

POSTED: 5:03 pm EDT September 23, 2004

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- It looks as if the charges will stick in a bizarre case of Vaseline vandalism in a New York town.

A Virginia man is accused of covering virtually every surface in a motel room with petroleum jelly.

A grand jury Thursday indicted Robert Chamberlain on a charge of felony criminal mischief in connection with last spring's incident.

He was arrested after a cleaning crew discovered the television set, furniture, carpeting and everything else in Chamberlain's motel room had been slathered with petroleum jelly.

Police found 14 empty Vaseline containers and numerous pornographic magazines in the room's trash can.

Police said that when they tracked him down at a nearby motel, Chamberlain was covered from head-to-toe with the stuff.

Damage to the motel room and its contents was estimated at more than $1,000. A manager at the Motel 6 said it took more than a month to clean up the mess.

Reminds me of Burt Renolds character in the movie Strip Tease with Demi Moore.

Heck, they should just check the gunboards for tips on removing Cosmoline.

Because of the dollar value of the damaged property.

Not to mention possible loss of revenue since it took a month to clean up.

A motel 6 room worth more than a thousand? You got to be kidding me. The last one I stayed in, looked like it had been furnished from yard sales.

New carpeting is not cheap! Not to mention loss of revenue for not being able to use the room for a month. He may get confined and a civil suit will likely ensue.

Wait until this weirdo molests some kid and stuffs them in a mason jar.
Were this a prank, it would be hilarious. But this guy is a genuine pervert.

Real men done use Vaseline, they use Cosmoline or Icyhot. Badasses use valve grinding compound.

Well the up side is, it's nice to know that Bill Clinton is out and about and recovering nicely from his by-pass heart surgery!

He's have been hard to arrest if he didn't just give up. Just think how slippery he'd have been and hard to hang on to.

When I was a CO, if an inmate knew we were going to roll with him, he'd coat homself with the stuff beforehand just for that reason.

Yep.

I had a guy strip down to his boxers, cover himself in Vasaline, asualt his mother and brother, then run out onto his roof. Eventually shot him 5 times with the supersock, which didnt work. So we had to dog pile him. Yuck!

I've heard the ad seg inmates in the local jail will flood their cells with soapy water, then wait in the back corner, if they know the guards are comming for them.

Thats when you flood the cell with OC before entering. Of course,we didn't have OC back then, but its cut the legs right out from most inmates that want to fight nowadays.
