Man Arrested With Guns, Ammo in Houston Hotel Room
Jan 01 2018
Houston Police have arrested a man after finding a "small arsenal" of weapons on the top floor of a Hyatt Regency hotel in Houston. When officers arrived, they eventually found an AR-15, a shotgun, a handgun, and plenty of ammo in the man's room, police said.
Houston police say they don't believe an intoxicated man arrested for having several guns in his hotel room meant to use the weapons.
Police said the man was arrested and jailed for unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing.
The Hyatt is preparing its own New Years Eve celebration at the hotel with a 50,000 balloon drop at the stroke of midnight, its website said.
Democrat wins recount in Virginia House race
With the parties split 50-50, there is no mechanism to break ties and any legislation short of 51 votes does not advance. The race is now a tie after the contested vote was changed to Republican candidate David Yancey after judges reviewed it.
They looked around further and found the firearms, police Lt. Gordon Macintosh told KPRC. The incident began when security at the Hyatt Regency called police about 1:30am for help dealing with an unruly, intoxicated man at the hotel bar, reports Click2Houston. Police added that they don't believe he meant to use the weapons. He said his truck was parked in the hotel garage. His name hasn't been released.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo confirmed via Twitter on December 31 that the situation is contained and that there are "no specific threats" to Houston.
"At this point, our investigators do not believe there was any kind of intent by him to use the weapons or to cause any kind of issue".
