BELMONT, N.C. — Police said a man barricaded himself inside a hotel room, demanding pizza and a marriage to Paris Hilton during a police standoff Saturday in Belmont.

WSOC reported that 61-year-old Fredrick Denny threatened to shoot at police unless they met his demands during a standoff that lasted several hours at the Hampton Inn.

Officials said he was pepper-sprayed, arrested and taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation. Authorities said the hotel’s second floor was temporarily shut down.

Officials said Denny had also apparently caused a disturbance at the hotel earlier in the day.
