An Ames man was taken into custody this morning after a nearly five-hour long standoff with sheriff’s deputies. Authorities were called to a mobile home on West Lincoln Way around midnight on a report of loud music.
Story County Sheriff’s deputies say 28-year-old Major L. Robinson threatened them and claimed he had a gun. A standoff ensued and didn’t end until after 5 a.m. when officials managed to get Robinson to give up and come outside. He was taken to an Ames hospital for an evaluation.
Deputies did not find a weapon. Robinson is charged with interference with official acts, disorderly conduct and first-degree harassment.
