Later in the evening RCMP responded to a call of a man swinging a two-by-four outside the Ramada Inn.

Officers attended and arrested a 23-year-old man from Williams Lake a short distance from the location.

"The suspect swung the two-by-four at a male and female that had passed through the lobby of the hotel on their way outside," said Williams Lake RCMP Sgt. Rick Lebeuf.
