    An intoxicated man was arrested at a hotel that hosts one of Houston's largest New Year's Eve parties after police found several guns and ammunition in his room, police said Sunday.

    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 responding officers found a rifle, a shotgun and a handgun in his room, plus ammunition.

    The 49-year-old man later told investigators he'd brought the guns into his room because he didn't want them to get stolen from his truck, which was parked in the hotel garage, police spokesman Victor Senties said.

    "At this point, our investigators do not believe there was any kind of intent by him to use the weapons or to cause any kind of issue. It appears he was just bringing them in," Senties said.

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    He said the man told investigators he was staying at the hotel to celebrate New Year's Eve and admitted he'd been drinking.

    Police said the man was arrested and jailed for unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing. Senties said a trespassing charge would stem from the fact that the man refused to leave the hotel when told to do so.

    Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted earlier Sunday that the situation at the hotel had been "contained" and authorities weren't aware of any specific threats to the city.
