The Maguson Hotel was evacuated on Saturday, due to a man reporting he was being held captive, and his two captors were making bombs inside a hotel room.
Early Saturday morning, 28-year-old Zachary Brinton, of Brentwood, approached a person at the Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, and said he was being help captive inside room 308 of the Maguson Hotel, which was across the street. Brinton also said that the two males that were holding him captive were attempting to construct explosive devices inside the hotel room, in addition to bombs they already had completed.
Police arrived, evacuated the hotel and detained the two men inside the hotel room, who consented to search. No signs of bombs, bomb making materials, or anything related was found in the room.
