Police standoff in Jonesboro ends with man's arrest

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A man wanted on several federal warrants held Jonesboro police at bay for two hours Friday night.

Around 6:30pm Friday, police officers spotted 37-year-old Carl Ashley.  When they approached him, officers say Ashley barricaded himself in an apartment on Van Dyne Street.

After two hours of negotiations, Ashley finally surrendered to police without incident.

Investigators tell Region 8 News that while Ashley did not take anyone hostage, he was not alone.
