Two people were taken to the hospital and 28 people were evaluated after a woman sprayed bear deterrent at the Howard Johnson hotel, at 1052 Boston Post Road in Milford, last night, according to police.
Police said they received a report of an unwanted guest at the hotel around 8:50 p.m.
A woman who had been staying at the hotel for a while had discharged a large canister of “bear deterrent,” which is similar to mace or pepper spray, in a second floor hallway, police said.
Police said she appeared intoxicated and was taken to the hospital.
The fire department cleared and ventilated the floor, police said.
About 28 people were evaluated at the scene, but it did not appear that anyone suffered any serious harm, according to officials. No information was available on the guest taken to the hospital.
No charges have been filed.
