Drunk man leads police to hotel room arsenal

A man with a small arsenal of weapons was arrested by Houston police inside the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Houston on Sunday morning

Houston police said an intoxicated and belligerent man at a downtown hotel where a New Year's Eve party is scheduled has been arrested for unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing after they found several guns and ammunition in his room. When officers arrived, they eventually found an AR-15, a shotgun, a handgun, and plenty of ammo in the man's room, police said. At 1:30 a.m. on December 31, while escorting Ziemba to his hotel room, the officer called for urgent backup after his attempts to subdue the man failed.

It comes as cities across the United States and around the world step up security for New Year's Eve celebrations.

The officer called for backup to arrest the suspect. Investigators also found more weapons in the man's vehicle.

Raiders set to pursue former coach Jon Gruden
I take a lot every year from coaches, some others. "This is insane ", Gruden said in a phone interview. The elephant in the room is that the Raiders now have a head coach in Jack Del Rio.

While the man initially faced charges of drunk and disorderly conduct, he now faces additional charges of trespassing and unlawful carry.

The Hyatt's Sunday night celebration spans four floors and includes live performances and a 50,000 balloon drop at midnight, according to its website.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted earlier Sunday that the situation at the hotel had been "contained" and authorities weren't aware of any specific threats to the city. Please be assured that heightened security measures are in place and will continue through the hotel's New Year's Eve celebration this evening.
