Nearly 38-Hour Standoff Ends at Hotel
A man at the University of Minnesota campus has been taken into custody
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — 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.
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.
He could be seen hanging from his window before he went back inside and was taken into custody around 1:45 this afternoon.
No one was hurt. A woman who was with the man was released late Monday.
Officers used what appeared to be tear gas around midday to try to dislodge the man.
