A 4-hour standoff occupies local law enforcement during the heat of the day yesterday in Gas. According to Allen County 9-1-1. The standoff happened shortly after a clerk at Pump N' Pete's reported a man had pulled a knife when she told him to leave the store. Sheriff's deputies converged on the home of Micheal Peter Troxel just after 11 am, and when he refused to come out, they surrounded the home on Main Street and called for help from Iola Police, The Highway Patrol, and the SRT team. Four hours of negotiation led to Troxel coming out of the home about 3pm and being arrested without further incident. He was taken by deputies to Allen County Hospital for evaluation.
