The Austin Police Department was involved in a early morning SWAT situation with a man at the Budget Inn Motel near SB I-35 and Rundberg.
Investigators say a husband and wife got into a fight in a room and that the woman called police around 3 a.m. because she felt threatened and was scared to leave.
When officers arrived, the woman was able to safely get out but the man refused to come out.
APD says the man threatened officers and told them he had a gun which is what prompted the SWAT team to be called.
As a precaution, all of the guests at the hotel were evacuated and waited in a bus until the standoff ended.
Police were eventually able to capture the man in one of the rooms and take him into custody. The man had made holes in the adjacent rooms trying to escape.
