— A transient man who was kicked off a Greyhound bus Wednesday faces a felony first-degree trespassing charge.

Bryan Allen Kloever, 29, also faces a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

At about 8 p.m., officers were called to the Steamboat Springs Holiday Inn for a report of a man loitering in the lobby. A hotel employee wanted help escorting the man from the property.

Kloever had been at the hotel since 3 p.m., and an employee told police Kloever gave false information in an attempt to gain access to a hotel room, according to an arrest affidavit.

Kloever told police he had no place to stay, and police gave him some options.

Kloever walked to the road and then went to the hotel’s restaurant after police told him not to, the affidavit states. Kloever was again told to leave the property, and he walked down U.S. Highway 40.

At 11:30 p.m., police were called to the hotel again. Restaurant employees saw Kloever lying on an entryway couch with his shoes off, according to the affidavit.

At one point, an employee said Kloever got into the driver’s seat of an unoccupied car, which was parked and running outside the restaurant.

Fearing Kloever was going to steal the car, a restaurant employee got in the passenger’s seat and saw Kloever had his hand on the shifter as if he were going to drive away, the affidavit states. The person using the car was able to convince Kloever to get out.

When police contacted Kloever at the hotel, Kloever said his ex-girlfriend’s friend told him to take the car so he had somewhere to sleep for the night, the affidavit states.

Kloever was taken to Routt County Jail.
