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

Police responded to a call around 1:30 a.m.at the Hyatt Regency in Houston, Texas, and attempted to arrest the man for being intoxicated and trespassing.

It comes as cities across the U.S. and around the world step up security for New Year's Eve celebrations. When help arrived, police noticed ammunition laying around the man's hotel room, Lt. Gordon Macintosh with Houston police said.


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.

Houston police and security went to his room to collect his belongings, where they found ammunition all over the room, local NBC affiliate KPRC reported.


A drunken man has been arrested after police found him with an arsenal of weapons on the top floor of a Houston hotel - just hours before the New Year's Eve "ball drop" party was due to take place below. The bash is supposed to span four floors and will ring in the New Year by dropping 50,000 balloons. Investigators also searched his vehicle and found weapons inside.

NBC reporter Jacob Rascon said on Twitter that the Hyatt Hotel had planned celebrations for Sunday night in honor of the 40th anniversary of Houston's New Year's Eve party and expected hundreds of guests to join.
