A Madison man who tried to book five rooms at the Edgewater Hotel for New Year's Eve was arrested when it was discovered the credit card he was using was a fake.

Demonad Mayhorn, 19, was tentative charged with a financial transaction card crime, possession of narcotics and possession of a firearm by a felon.

When Mayhorn tried to use the counterfeit card, Edgewater employees called police.

"He had a loaded handgun in his pocket, as well as several opioid pills," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
