An Ingham County stand-off ended after a man made some bold threats and police pulled out a taser.
It happened in Delhi Township Tuesday afternoon. Ingham County officials have one man in custody after he claimed to have explosives and reportedly said he wanted to shoot a police officer.
The standoff that didn't last long and it had exactly the type of ending officials say they train for. It all unfolded around 12:30 Tuesday afternoon on the 900 block of Harper Road, that's just south of Lansing.
Officials say they got a call from the man's wife, who claimed he was drunk and shooting his gun in the house. She said he was making several threats, including one that he wanted to kill a police officer.
Officials tased the man after he tried to walk away from them. Just before being tased officials say the man told 911 dispatchers he had explosives in his house and planned to blow the area up, in addition to his earlier threats about wanting to kill a police officer.
A negotiator was able to talk the man out of the house.
It's obviously a very scary and serious situation when someone makes threats involving explosives and guns, so officials evacutated nearby homes and a daycare while the standoff was going on.
"It was less than an hour. It went pretty quickly... sometimes if you get a good negotiator to ask the right questions you can talk him out and thank goodness the deputy was able to do that," said Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth.
He says situations like this don't happen too often, but he says this one ended well, no one was hurt.
"Training, training, training. They train to this exact circumstance... and this case everything had a happy ending and we're very thankful for that," said Wriggelsworth.
After a search of the house, officials say they did not find any explosives, but they did find at least three rifles and a shotgun. The man is now in police custody, where he'll undergo a mental evaluation and most likely face several charges.
