Police: Iowa man who led standoff had no weapons

BOONE, Iowa (AP) — Police say a central Iowa man accused of leading a nearly seven-hour standoff with officers had no weapons on him when he was arrested.

Boone Police say 33-year-old Joshua Daniels was arrested without incident early Thursday morning. He was alone in the house and there were no reported injuries.

The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/146UmwM ) reports authorities attempted to communicate with Daniels for hours. He had barricaded himself and threatened to burn down the house owned by his parents. He was reported missing Tuesday from a halfway house in Ames.

Daniels was taken to the Boone County Jail. He had three warrants issued for his arrest, but it’s unclear what charges he may face in connection with the standoff.

A message left for the jail wasn’t immediately returned Thursday.
