FARR WEST -- Police say a mix of drinking and prescription drugs led to a potentially dangerous domestic violence situation here Monday evening.
Weber County Sheriff's Sgt. Brent Butler said police were able to talk a man in his 60s out of a bedroom he'd created in the carport of a mobile home at the Westwood Village Mobile Home Park at 1111 N. 2000 West.
The situation lasted about an hour and a half, starting just after 5:30 p.m., until police got the man out. Police said he had threatened his 96-year-old mother at whose house he lived, telling her he had a gun.
At one point, dispatchers called for a SWAT team, but Butler said no SWAT actions were required, as a handful of police talked the man out by calling him on his cellphone.
Butler said the man was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest.
Officers were worried about the elderly mother and found concerned neighbors to take the woman in while they worked to get the son out. Later, the officers found neighbors to fill in for the night, as the son normally helps in the mother's care.
