  • Eight-Hour Standoff Ends at Downtown Hotel

    Police pumped tear gas through an air conditioning duct and burst through a door to arrest a man barricaded for eight hours inside a downtown Los Angeles luxury hotel.

    Several rooms in the Westin Bonaventure Hotel were evacuated during the standoff, which began at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and ended before 4 a.m. Thursday.

    No one was injured during the siege.

    Authorities said the man rented a room for about a week and wasn't paying his bill. The hotel asked him to leave and the man made threats indicating he had a weapon, authorities said.

    SWAT team officers were called in but the man refused to surrender.

    It's unclear if the man, whose name hasn't been released, had a weapon.
    “Let him go, Lou. Someone driving that fast has no time for a ticket.”
