BEND, OR -- A 35-year-old Bend man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after a brief standoff with police. According to Bend PD, officers responded to the home on Murphy Road around 12:30 p.m., after a parole and probation officer attempted to contact Gary Vincent Spaniol, Jr.
According to the officer, Spaniol had a felony warrant for absconding on his probation. When the officer told Spaniol that he was under arrest, he retreated into the house and refused to come out.
Bend Police surrounded the home and were able to make phone contact with the man, who was on probation after a first-degree theft conviction. A crisis negotiator spoke with Spaniol for approximately 45 minutes to convince him to exit the house. He was taken into custody without incident at 1:54 p.m.
