Man Arrested With Weapons At Pelosi Hotel
DENVER (AP) ― House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefly evacuated from her downtown Denver hotel on Saturday when a man carrying two hunting rifles and two pistols tried to check in to the hotel.
Secret Service spokesman Malcolm Wiley said 29-year-old Joseph Calanchini of Pinedale, Wyo., faces a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon after police officers at the Sheraton hotel noticed him carrying a rifle-type case while checking in. Calanchini did not have a concealed weapons permit, said Lance Clem, spokesman for the Colorado Department of Public Safety.
Wiley said he didn’t know if the weapons were loaded.
Pelosi and other guests briefly evacuated the hotel but were never in danger, Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly said.
Calanchini remained at Denver City Jail Sunday on $10,000 bond, said Denver Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Steckman.
Authorities said Calanchini was in town on business and had had the weapons worked upon, including mounting of site scopes, to prepare for an upcoming hunting trip.
“The speaker was never in any danger and she appreciates the quick and professional response of the police,” said Daly.
