Harbison hotel stand off ends peacefully

Aug 9, 2011 4:46:00 PM - thestate.com
A Hampton Inn in the Harbison area was evacuated Tuesday morning after a man barricaded himself in a room and called police.

The Columbia Police Department responded with a crisis negotiation team at the hotel on Woodcross Drive, said Jennifer Timmons, a department spokesman. The stand off lasted about two hours and was resolved without anyone being injured, she said.

The man was taken to an area hospital for an evaluation. No charges were filed against him, Timmons said.
