STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. — Steamboat Springs police stormed a hotel room early Sunday and arrested a man who allegedly threatened to kill officers with his bow and arrow.
The standoff began about 4:30 a.m. when staff at the Ptarmigan Inn reported that a male guest was shooting arrows in his hotel room, Steamboat Today reported.
When police arrived, they found the man to be drunk and suicidal, the paper said. The suspect said he would kill anyone who came into the room.
Police cleared the fourth floor of the hotel and began negotiating with the suspect. After more than four fruitless hours, officers broke into the room via the balcony and arrested the man.
The man was booked on charges of reckless endangerment, violation of a protection order, prohibited use of a weapon, obstructing a police officer and trespassing. His name was not released.
