Some more info from The Houston Chronicle:
Investigators are waiting to talk to the unruly guest and figure out why he showed up to the hotel with multiple guns. He’s facing charges of trespassing and unlawful carry.
“He’s intoxicated so they won’t be able to interview him till he’s sobered up a bit,” Lt. Gordon MacIntosh said early Sunday.
Authorities didn’t immediately release the man’s name, but said they’d found and towed his truck to look for more weapons.
The hotel’s massive 50,000-balloon drop for New Year’s Eve is still on, according to a hotel employee.
We’ll provide updates if any materialize.
