Old Man In Standoff With Police

by The Editors on January 31, 2008

After holding police at bay in his Spoonbill Lane home for nearly four hours yesterday afternoon an 82-year-old Carlsbad man finally collapsed on his bed and was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

It all began with a confusing 911 call from the man, who said he was in trouble and needed help, Cain said. . . Dispatchers determined the man was possibly suffering from dementia and eventually got his wife on the phone, and she told them he had just pointed a handgun at her, Cain said.

Thanksfully, no one was hurt and because of the situation police do not plan on filing criminal charges.
