The 54-year-old man was drinking and threatening to kill himself. Police were told the man had several weapons in the home and a family member had taken them away from him earlier that day, according to a press release by the Racine Police Department.
The stand-off lasted five hours as officers were trying to check the welfare of a man inside the home. He refused to come outside, but at about 2:30 a.m. the man surrendered.
The man was taken to Wheaton Franciscan Hospital to be evaluated.
