Washington County sheriff's deputies were in a standoff Friday night with an armed drunk man who refused to surrender to deputies near Southwest Midline and Back Court Place.
Deputies said he pointed a gun at his roommate. The roommate escaped and called 911. They used a megaphone to try to get him to stand down.
Sgt. Dave Thompson said deputies eventually decided to leave the scene even though the roommate with the gun never came out.
No one was arrested.
