A man is in jail after an eight-hour standoff with police in Hawarden, Iowa this weekend. It started Saturday night when a woman told police that 31-year-old Paul Long had assaulted her and threatened her with a handgun. She said Long told her police would have to shoot him if they came inside the house. Officers eventually came in and found Long hiding in the attic. He was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic abuse, assault and child endangerment.
