A man who had barricaded himself in a Belmont hotel room was pepper sprayed and taken into custody Saturday after a standoff with police that lasted several hours.
According to police, 61-year-old Fredrick Denny barricaded himself inside his room at the Hampton Inn and threatened to shoot at police unless they met his demands, which included a pizza and a marriage to Paris Hilton.
