HPD: Man arrested, found with guns, ammo in downtown hotel room

Houston police have arrested a man who was initially going to be charged with drunk and disorderly conduct at a downtown hotel until officers discovered an arsenal of weapons in his room

Houston police made a potentially disturbing arrest overnight, one that led to the discovery of a small arsenal and lots of ammunition in a hotel room.

Earlier this year, a man shot dead 58 people from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, Las Vegas.

The officer called for backup to arrest the suspect. 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 Chief Art Acevedo tweeted later on New Year's Eve that the threat had been 'contained'. Police found several weapons including an assault rifle, a shotgun and loads of ammunition.

The man is now in police custody, facing charges of trespassing and unlawful carry, and as of mid-morning Sunday, reportedly waiting to sober up before investigators can continue with their questioning. He said his truck was parked in the hotel garage. The bash is supposed to span four floors and will ring in the New Year by dropping 50,000 balloons.

The Las Vegas attack, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, reignited a debate on gun control in the United States, where the Second Amendment of the Constitution guarantees citizens "the right to keep and bear arms".

Senties earlier Sunday that it was an active investigation but "kudos to our officers because they actually prevented what could have been a pretty unsafe situation tonight". When police arrived, they arrested him.
