One woman arrested after SE Austin SWAT standoff

One woman has been arrested after an overnight SWAT standoff in southeast Austin. It happened along Quicksilver Boulevard near Bluff Springs Road.

The Austin Police Department says someone called 9-1-1 about a disturbance at a home just before midnight. 

When officers arrived they tried to get a woman to come out of a house but she wouldn't so a SWAT team was called in. As a precaution nearby homes were evacuated.

At around 3:45 a.m. the woman surrendered without incident and she was arrested. 

No one was hurt. 

Police say no further details about the woman or the incident are being released at this time.
