A Conway man involved in a standoff with local authorities on Thursday has been ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation, the Conway Police Department said.
The 28-year-old male barricaded himself inside the residence on May 24 at 3 Sedgefield Drive in west Conway for around three and a half hours following suicide threats.
Officials with the Conway police department, including the SWAT team, bomb squad members and members of the Conway Fire Department responded to the home at Kensington and Sedgefield Drive, located off of Country Club Lane, and removed the man from the home after negotiations were unsuccessful, according to the police report.
The man was the only one inside of the home at the time.
Homes surrounding the residence were temporarily evacuated as a precaution.
LaTresha Woodruff, public information officer with the department, said SWAT team members fired pepper spray into the residence several times, and the man eventually emerged.
It is unclear whether the man was in possession of a firearm, but officials said they had reason to believe he may have had access to one.
The man was checked by emergency personnel at the scene and was determined to be unharmed. No officers were injured in the incident.
"We never thought that anyone was in danger," Woodruff said.
The man was treated at the Conway Regional emergency room for an injury sustained the previous night.
