IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The daughter of former NBA player Scottie Pippen has been arrested on allegations that she urinated in an Iowa City hotel lobby.

The Iowa City Police Department says 20-year-old Sierra Pippen was arrested about 1:30 a.m. Sunday at the Sheraton Iowa City Hotel on a charge of public intoxication. The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports  she was released on bond later Sunday morning.

A police complaint says an officer reported Pippen smelling of alcohol and having impaired speech and balance in a walkway near the hotel. She refused a preliminary alcohol screening. Pippen has pleaded not guilty and will appear in court May 28.

Online court records indicate Pippen was arrested on the same charge earlier this month.

Pippen is an undergraduate student at the University of Iowa.

    In her defense I did the same exact thing at the Iowa City Holiday Inn 20 years ago. They locked all of the bathrooms on the first floor to keep all the drunk college kids out. I was about to wiz my pants so I found a dark corner. Security guys snatched me up. It was embarrassing and stupid. I spent the night in jail and paid the fine. She’s a young person that made a silly mistake. Don’t fry her for it. Live and learn.

    It amaze me how stigma- a set of negative and often unfair beliefs that people have about something, i.e. the disease of alcoholism in this young girl’s life. The disease of alcoholism is progressive and it takes so many lives. This incident is her public bottom and that in itself should be the alarm for GET HER TO TREATMENT!!!!!! Often with public attention because of her father being a former well known NBA Player only adds more stress and depression to her life. For the haters out there, don’t judge her until you have walked in her shoes. There is something more that is taking place in her young life.

    Is it a coincidence that the advertisement just to the right of the article says “Watch: what is overactive bladder”.
