Lovingfoss DUI

Posted on 31st March 2015 at 09:05

The current owner of the Monticello Hotel is in hot water again, picked up last night after an alleged DUI and hit-and-run incident. Phillip Guy Lovingfoss, 49, was arrested at about 7 last night, after a rear-end collision in front of the hotel. The driver of a Ford pickup claims that someone driving a black Lincoln Navigator was going “way too fast,” and rear-ended the truck. After a brief struggle outside of the hotel, Lovingfoss allegedly went into the building, where he was contacted by Longview Police. Inside, Lovingfoss reportedly refused to submit to a breath test or field sobriety tests. He was arrested inside the building, and was booked into the Cowlitz County Jail on a mandatory hold. The incident comes just less than two years after Lovingfoss was arrested for DUI in almost exactly the same place, as taping of the “Hotel Hell” episode involving the Monticello Hotel was getting under way. It’s reported that Lovingfoss has several other DUI incidents in his past, as well.
