An 84-year-old man barricaded himself in his house, telling police he had enough weapons to "take down the whole f-- army if I wanted to." He was arrested after a six-hour standoff with a SWAT team, Houston police said.
Police say Jarold Lancaster, who served in the Marines during World War II, was drinking and fighting with his wife.
He shot at her - but missed. That's when police say his wife ran out of the house to call for help, and he barricaded himself inside.
During the six hour standoff police tried all they could to get him out of his house.Ā They first called him on a phone, then used a loudspeaker and finally brought in the tear gas. Still, he still wouldn't budge.
"We put lots of tear gas in there," Houston Police Lt. A. Mihalco told CNN affiliate KTRK. "He withstood the tear gas. It seemed like it didn't even faze him."
The Houston Chronicle reported that police finally ended the standoff when they saw through a window that the man was awake and didn't have any weapons nearby.
After he was brought out of the house local reporters asked him about what happened between him and his wife.
Then, they wanted to know, how long had the couple been married.
"Too damn long," Lancaster answered, as he was taking away.
