Police on Sunday arrested a man they say was found with several guns and ammunition in his Hyatt Regency hotel room downtown

After hotel security called police, authorities went to the man's room to gather his belongings.

The man was arrested for unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing.

Less than 24 hours before party goers were set to pack the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Downtown police made a major arrest.

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. The scene inside the accommodation is reminiscent of the Las Vegas shooter earlier in 2017, who stockpiled weapons and ammunition inside his hotel room.

Giants trade for Evan Longoria
For the first 10 years of the team's existence, the Devil Rays went 645-972 (.399), never sniffing the playoffs. He was ranked the top prospect in the Giants system according to MLB Pipeline and made his debut last summer.

The officer called for what's been described as urgent backup around 1:30 a.m. when his attempts to subdue the man failed.

When other officers arrived, they found several guns inside the suspect's room. Hotel staff said he was drunk at the bar, and refused to leave. Police said responding officers found a rifle, a shotgun and a handgun in his room, plus ammunition. Investigators say he was by himself and they are trying to figure out why he had the weapons.

Police are waiting to interview the man until he has sobered up, Macintosh said. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted about the incident, saying the situation is contained and there is no specific threat to Houston.
