MEXICO — Police say two men have been taken into custody after a nearly three-hour standoff in Mexico ended peacefully.
Mexico Police Chief James Theriault says a domestic dispute sparked the standoff at about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.
He says one of the men arrested, 23-year-old Troy Blanchard, contacted someone he was not supposed to because of existing bail conditions. Theriault says Blanchard had been drinking, which was also in violation of his bail conditions.
Blanchard and a co-defendant, 22-year-old Damen Korhonen, ran into another home with three people inside. Those people emerged about 45 minutes later.
The standoff ended at about 10:30 p.m. when both suspects surrendered. They are charged with terrorizing and trespassing.
No weapons were found.
