Man Arrested Carrying Weapons At Pelosi Hotel

DENVER (AP) - A man who tried to carry two hunting rifles and two pistols into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's downtown Denver hotel remains in police custody today.
Secret Service spokesman Malcolm Wiley said Pelosi and other guests briefly left the hotel during the incident yesterday but were never in danger.
The man, 29-year-old Joseph Calanchini of Pinedale, Wyo., faces a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon.
Police officers at the Grand Hyatt hotel noticed him carrying a rifle-type case at the entrance and detained him.
Wiley said he didn't know if the weapons were loaded.
A Pelosi spokesman said the speaker was never in any danger.
