Suspect in custody after hourslong standoff in GR

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids police have taken a suspect into custody after a standoff that lasted five hours.

The 29-year-old man was wanted for several warrants, including some violent felonies. Police attempted to arrest the man earlier Friday afternoon before he was seen running into a house on Boston Street NE.

Negotiators spent the next several hours talking with the man before he eventually surrendered without incident.

Nearby streets were closed down during the incident, but police say the public was never in danger.

    Similar events in the past have ended with the suspect long gone.Why?He was aided and abetted to safety by “others”.The motto in SE GR is,”help the con–not the cop.”
    Not too late to resign,Payne.Though I find it interesting that you’re going to begin a new immigration policy in a couple months–sanctuary city time?I’ll comment on that WHEN it happens.

      He can’t resign from a job he’s yet to have. Kind of like you coming back from a place you’ve never been. Give the guy a chance. Even you might have a pleasant surprise.
