    NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A man is now in custody after police say he barricaded himself inside a metro Atlanta hotel room.

    Roswell police and SWAT teams were called to the Ramada Inn off Mansell Road around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

    Police tell Channel 2's Justin Wilfon the man caused a disturbance in the lobby before he went back to his room. 

    Officers went into the room shortly after 5 p.m. and used a Taser on the suspect. Police say the man threatened to shoot officers, but they did not find a gun.

    NewsChopper 2 flew over the hotel, which was locked off by police tape, and captured the moment police put him in the back of a patrol car.
