Finally, a story with-a happy ending. I love the robot part. NEWPORT NEWS A 79-year-old Newport News man was arrested early this morning after a six-hour standoff with police at his home. William Wells was charged with brandishing a firearm. No one was injured, and Wells surrendered peacefully around midnight after a standoff at his home on Morrison Avenue. Police say Wells barricaded himself inside a house on Morrison and refused to come out. Police spokesman Lou Thurston said Wells is believed to be on several types of medication and was apparently hallucinating. His wife told police he had pulled a shotgun and a handgun on her and made statements she took as threats. She was able to flee the home around 5:40 p.m. The Newport News fire department also responded to the scene, and a robot with a camera was sent into the home to determine the man's location inside.
