COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A man has been arrested following a brief standoff in Council Bluffs.

The Council Bluffs Police Department says 29-year-old Kevin Bequette was taken into custody Monday morning.

A fugitive task force says it tracked Bequette to a residence and attempted to apprehend him on a warrant for a parole violation. He is accused of locking himself inside a detached garage behind the home.

Authorities communicated with Bequette for nearly an hour. He is accused of making threatening comments, which led officers to break into the garage to arrest him.

Police Capt. Todd Weddum tells the Council Bluffs Nonpareil (https://bit.ly/RZsXvG ) that Bequette is on parole for arson charges and was wanted on other warrants. It’s unclear if charges have been filed in this case.
