Following a tense two-hour standoff, police in Waller, Texas, arrested a suspect who allegedly called police and told them he saw a deputy walk into a Jack in the Box restaurant and planned to shoot him when he came back outside.
After getting the shocking call, the 911 dispatchers immediately contacted the deputy and told him not to exit the restaurant.
KTRK-TV reports on how the scary situation unfolded:
Multiple deputies from both Waller and Harris County then arrive and surround the suspect. A negotiator gets the man on the phone and listens to him talk about a recent divorce and his life in the military.
While the man is distracted, deputies fired a flash bang into the man's truck and pulled him out.
After getting the suspect in handcuffs, officers learned the man never actually had a weapon. The unidentified suspect faces a charge of making a terroristic threat against an officer.
The incident comes as many claim anti-police rhetoric is reaching unprecedented levels.
Last week, Harris County, Texas, sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth was killed execution-style. Law enforcement officials said he appears to have been targeted specifically because he was a police officer.
