A firefighter sprays water on a handcuffed suspect. City police forced entry into a second floor motel room Saturday afternoon, July 14, 2012, and arrested a man inside the room.  Police were responding to a call reporting a strong odor coming from one one of the rooms  facing the courtyard. When the subject was taken from the room, he was immediately washed down with water by a firefighter. Motel guests were evacuated from their rooms before police swarmed the room.
