Fredrick Denney, an Oregon man, has been arrested for barricading himself into a North Carolina hotel room and making demands for police to immediately bring him a Pizza and celebrity socialite Paris Hilton.

Denney, 61, barricaded himself into a second floor apartment of the Hampton Inn in Belmont, N.C. and demanded that police bring him Hilton and bizarrely demanded that she would marry him. If his demands were not met he claimed that he shoot his gun at police officers.

Police spent hours trying to talk to Denney out of his strange demands, and in fact several agencies were reportedly involved in the effort to talk the man out of his room. At one point even a Regional SWAT team was deployed to help the situation. However, eventually it was good old fashioned police work that prevailed, and Denney was pepper sprayed in the face before being taken into custody.

Authorities are familiar with Denney, who comes from Roseburg, Ore. and it has been confirmed that he has had previous dealings with SWAT teams after causing problems.

Denney has been taken to hospital for mental evaluation, according to police. He has been charged with being "intoxicated and disorderly" local authorities have confirmed.

Paris Hilton is a great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, who is the founder of Hilton Hotels. She was born in New York City but raised in both California and New York. She began a modeling career as a teenager when she was with Donald Trump's modeling agency, T Management.

Hilton is well known for being as a socialite and is often seen partying and receives extensive coverage from celebrity and gossip magazines. She has also made cameo appearances in Ben Stiller's comedy film Zoolander in 2001, as well as Wonderland and The Cat in the Hat starring Mike Myers in 2003.
