A four-hour standoff kept Tulsa Police busy early Saturday. 41-year old Ronald Stow barricaded himself inside his home on North Joplin.

His wife had called police to report they were fighting. Officers tried to negotiate with Stow for more than two hours before calling in the Special Operations team. Stow surrendered after police sprayed tear gas into the home.

No one was injured, but Stow was arrested for assault, battery, and possession of a firearm. He was wanted in another county on a felony warrant.
