•Pendleton police arrested a Washington man for threatening people with a gun at a hotel.

Officers responded at 12:12 p.m. to the Knights Inn, 310 S.E. Dorion Ave., after a manager called 911 about a man with a gun, Police Chief Stuart Roberts reported. The officers arrived and confronted Lawrence Blain Kaleak, 22, of Taholah, Washington. He was in front of room 108 and had a chrome-colored pistol at the time.

“As officers verbally confronted Kaleak, he attempted to conceal the handgun in his waistband as he retreated into his room.,” Roberts said. “Officers were able to get to the door of the room before Kaleak could close it.”

Police continued to order Kaleak, who had his back toward them, but he eventually dropped the pistol on the bed, and officers arrested him.

Roberts also said police found alcoholic beverages and possibly controlled substances had impaired Kaleak.

Officers also determined that before the 911 call, Kaleak pointed the pistol at two people who were standing outside a bank of rooms smoking cigarettes.

“Kaleak allegedly demanded two cigarettes from the individuals while threatening to shoot them if they did not comply,” Roberts stated.

Police booked Kaleak into the Umatilla County Jail, Pendleton, on the following: first-degree robbery, pointing a firearm at another, menacing, attempted unlawful use of weapon, felon in possession of a weapon, interfering with a peace officer and second-degree disorderly conduct.
