Listen: Santo, New York, Stanton discussed on Zero Blog Thirty
"I was a single dad and that probably created some issues for you guys that were. Right. Like, those kind of bullshit that I got out of a lot of stuff. I mean, so long ago. Fuck, you know, I if I asked you that fucking eight years ago, you would have said that all dude, I it would be like fucked up on the fucker, you know. But I don't remember about that one of my favorite stories about Stanton is because he was so big he destroyed like everything in his path. That's why I bring up the trip to New York when walk walk them through what that hotel look like the night that Santo completely destroyed the DoubleTree on fifty first and Lexington. I mean, the biggest thing you gotta think about is. When you go on these these VIP service missions, they don't they don't go for cheap hotels. They go for the most expensive hotel in the area. And when you go to downtown Manhattan. There. It's a very nice hotel and everything we had our own rooms because we had dogs and the even the bathrooms were were amazing. And I'm pretty sure that night me and you wanted to go hit the town for a little bit. And did you not bring a kennel for Santo? I don't remember. What happened? No. I did bring a kennel for Santo. But because like you said he was so huge. I didn't wanna stick them in there. Because I knew you're going to be gone for a while. So I just thought you know, what this big hundred twenty five pound bitch shouldn't go into kennel that's designed for at most seventy eighty pound dog, which is seventy eighty pound dog is a big dog. He's another fifty pounds on top of that. When he was in these kennels, he couldn't move. And I knew that we were going to be gone for several hours going out on the town. So I just think you know, what I'm gonna put this dude into the bathroom big. The biggest mistake of your life. Besides not ducking in front of a window. But yeah. Well, yeah. True point too. So when you walked in the bathroom, what did you see? Cure destruction the toilet was completely broken dismantled. I think even the shelf where the sink was somehow broke. There was glass everywhere. It was horrific like, I'm not even exaggerating like Santo. He I'm pretty sure he turned into like a demon at that point and said fuck this bathroom and completely destroyed it, and I've never thought about what that must have sounded like to the people in the hallway until now. Because he took you know, whenever you put the back of the toilet on. He completely flip that off. That's what was shattered everywhere. There's a rack where they put like the towels, and he ate an entire hairdryer. He pulled down the shower curtain in on top of that he shit on the floor and then fun in the shit. So it would go everywhere. And I had I was a sergeant at the time. I had to call my boss and be like look dude Santo eight a bathroom in New York in. We were all Dervis because I was I think I was started. That's when I was starting to go on promotion boards to get promoted early gonna happen. Yeah. But I did this. It was it was definitely awkward. I vividly. Remember, the secret service agent in charge of us being Mike? What the fuck up in the? Like he was pretty fucking pissed off. And I I started taking fuck, man. Like are we going to be able to go on these missions anymore? You know what I mean? Because they were that is about it. We'll be amount of the damage. I believe the final damage ended up being like fifty grand. But they they called the next highest person the secret service person called it the highest person in his chain of command on that mission. And he was like just chalk it up as an accident. It's fine. Just tell them to charge secret service. We're like what? And I called my SAS sergeant let him know.."
