U.S. police say they arrested him after the weapons were discovered at the Hyatt Regency in downton Houston in the early hours of Sunday morning. When police went to his room to retrieve his belongings, they found ammunition, an AR-15, a shotgun and a handgun, police said.

Investigators say security officers called police after the man became belligerent and refused to be leave the bar at downtown Houston's Hyatt Regency Hotel.

The Hyatt says its New Year's Eve party spans four floors, featuring live performances and the dropping of 50,000 balloons at midnight.

When police arrived at the scene, the 21-year-old told police that he had a Ruger 9 mm that may have been stolen.

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. Police also confiscated his truck and were searching it for more weapons. 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. The man was taken to jail to await questioning.

Acevedo said on Twitter earlier Sunday that the situation was "contained" and there were no specific threats to Houston.

Houston police said they had yet work out whether the man had any intention of using the weapons and are yet to release his identity.
