HOUSTON-An intoxicated man was taken into custody at a Houston hotel ahead of New Year's Eve festivities Sunday, police said. He was then arrested on charges of unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing.

Police found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Houston police report that a man has been arrested after authorities discovered multiple weapons and a bevy of ammunition inside his hotel room that was located on the top floor of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston. Officers say he fought with security and they tried to escort him back to his room but he was kicked out of the hotel. "He said his truck was parked in the hotel garage". That's where they found an AR-15, a shotgun and a handgun, as well as "many rounds of ammunition", the paper reported.

Senties says investigators don't believe the man intended "to use the weapons or to cause any kind of issue".

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

Police said the man is jailed. That is the site of tonight's famous New Year's Eve party.

The name of the man hasn't been immediately released.

Police are still investigating the incident.
