Hotel guests said they were held at gunpoint, not by a robber, but by the hotel's manager.

It happened at the Garden Tree Hotel on Shelby Oaks Drive on August 6.

Hotel patrons said manager Martin Golden pointed a gun at them after asking one patron to put on a shirt.

The man said he did put on his shirt, but afterward, Golden still pulled out a gun and pointed it at the group in the parking lot.

Golden told police he did not pull out a gun. 

He turned over surveillance video, but investigators said the video is not clear enough to determine what exactly happened.

Golden turned himself in at the request of the District Attorney's Office. He's charged with three counts of aggravated assault.
