PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - After a six-hour standoff, authorities arrested a 63-year-old suburban Portland man accused of setting his neighbor’s truck on fire.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to the Rock Creek neighborhood Sunday night after neighbors reported that Judson Holden burned the truck and was threatening people with a shotgun.

Holden was in his house with his 95-year-old mother when authorities arrived. Deputies were able to get the woman out during the ensuing negotiations.

Deputies eventually deployed what the sheriff’s office describes as a gas irritant. Though Holden had a gas mask, the gas proved too much for him and he surrendered Monday morning.

Holden has been charged with arson, menacing and felon in possession of a firearm.

The sheriff’s office says deputies found spent shotgun shells in the street.
