SPOKANE, Wash. - One man was taken into custody Thursday night after a brief standoff with Spokane Police and the SWAT team. 

It happened at Perry and Illinois, near the Avista Headquarters on Mission. 
Witnesses say a husband and his wife got into a fight and when another man stepped in, the husband pulled a gun on him. Eventually the husband retreated back into his house refusing to come out.

Police brought in a SWAT team and a negotiator who was eventually able to get the man to give himself up without incident. He was walked to and placed in the back of a police car.

Neighbors say this isn't the first time something like this has happened, and they are glad police finally did something about it. 

After the arrest officers executed a search warrant on the home looking for firearms. The man arrested by police has not been identified, but is being charged with assault and unlawful possession of a firearm

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas.
