Police took a 22-year-old Lawrence man into custody Tuesday night after a nearly two-hour standoff outside a mobile home in the 3300 block of Iowa Street. The man in custody is alleged to have threatened a police officer with a gun.

Lawrence Police Department officers surrounded the trailer at approximately 7:30 p.m. Police officers on the scene told police dispatchers they saw a woman wearing a pink shirt inside the trailer with the man. They heard her screaming, telling the man not to do something.

Shortly after 8 p.m., a police officer told dispatchers that the woman had come out of the residence unharmed.

The man was taken into custody shortly before 9:30 p.m., according to Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. He said the incident had stemmed from a domestic disturbance from inside the home earlier in the night. Sarna said no one was injured.

The man is being held on suspicion of domestic battery and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

The Journal-World generally does not name suspects unless they are formally charged.

Police have taken a man into custody.. Not "Police have took a man into custody."

About time for the usual suspects to talk about the militarized police department.

Oh yeah, except they peacefully ended the situation.

I can sense the disappointment from the progressives.

Militarized police dept? Your an idiot. I don't always side with the Police, yet I know they are trained and take every precaution to handle these situations as peaceful as possible.

That was Neo's point, re-read the post.

There are those who say the police are militarized, but they handled this situation without aggression.

I was wondering what color the woman's top was. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

So, they won't give the guys name, but they'll show a video with the guys face? Odd.
