Standoff at Minnesota hotel ends peacefully
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A man who holed up in a hotel room at the University of Minnesota campus and kept police at bay for more than a day has been taken into custody.
University spokesman Evan Lapiska says the man was taken into custody about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday. Lapiska says no one was hurt.
The standoff at the Graduate Hotel began shortly after midnight Monday after police said they went to do a welfare check and to arrest the man on a ``white collar'' warrant for a nonviolent crime.
A woman who was with the man was released late Monday.
Officers had used what appeared to be tear gas around midday Tuesday to try to dislodge the man.
