ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police say a man's fatal fall from the 10th floor of a St. Louis hotel was accidental.

They identified the man on Monday as 23-year-old William Brown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Police found Brown dead Saturday night on the second level of an outdoor atrium at the Crowne Plaza Hotel downtown.

Witnesses told police Brown had been drinking and was upset. They say Brown's friends tried to calm him down before he ran toward a 10th-floor window.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
