SUPERIOR - The suspect in a 12-hour standoff with SWAT teams in Superior has been taken into custody.
At 12:40 p.m. Saturday, 39-year-old Bryan Heatherington was arrested by the Boulder County SWAT team. After searching the main residence, a K9 was deployed into the crawl space where Heatherington was hiding.
According to Commander Heidi Prentup, when Heatherington heard the K9 barking he agreed to surrender. He was not injured.
At 10 p.m. Friday night, deputies from the Boulder County Sheriff's office were sent to the 300 block of South Third Avenue in reference to a domestic disturbance.
Police say the victim and the victim's father provided them probable cause to arrest someone inside the home for second-degree assault and felony menacing.
Deputies attempted to contact the suspect numerous times, but he did not respond from inside the residence.
At 1 a.m., the Boulder County SWAT team was called to assist in removing the suspect, who had barricaded himself in the residence.
When negotiations over the phone failed, police deployed gas into the residence and a robot was used to search inside the home.
The suspect is currently the only occupant of the residence, according to the sheriff's office. No residents were evacuated and those that were home in adjacent houses were asked to stay inside.
