    By: Sharon Phillips



    Tulsa police arrested Robert Place after a standoff at a house near East Zion Street and North Peoria Avenue Sunday afternoon.

    The incident started when officers responded to a noise complaint at the home.

    Officials told FOX23 that Place allegedly threatened neighbors with a crowbar after they drove through his yard then locked himself in the house.

    Police surrounded the house and called Place out with the loud speaker for a few hours. At one point, they told Place if he didn't come out, they would send in a K-9 unit.

    Officers got a warrant to go into the house. Around 5 p.m. police broke through the door and Place came out with his hands up.
