The daughter of Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen was reportedly arrested Sunday morning for urinating in a hotel lobby.

Sierra M. Pippen, 20, entered the lobby of a Sheraton Inn around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday and proceeded to urinate on the floor before leaving, according to an Iowa City police criminal complaint obtained by The Gazette.

Online ICPD records confirm that an intoxicated female pedestrian “just walked in and peed at the front desk” of the hotel at 1:29 a.m. on April 26, and was ultimately arrested.

Pippen was reportedly found in a walkway next to the hotel, and appeared to be intoxicated and smelled of alcohol, according to police. She was also reportedly wearing two wristbands from a bar.

According to The Gazette, when confronted by police, Pippen accused officers of being racist, and refused to participate in field sobriety and breath test.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports she was released on bond later Sunday morning.

Pippen has pleaded not guilty and will appear in court May 28, according to the Associated Press.

Hotel staff reportedly told police they recognized Pippen from an earlier incident, in which she was allegedly arrested for getting into a drunken fight with hotel security on April 10. Online police records show that a female was arrested at the hotel on that date for assaulting security officers. Pippen’s breath test reportedly showed her blood alcohol content to be .141 percent at the time.

Pippen is a University of Iowa student. Her father was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame after winning six championships with the Chicago Bulls.
