Man arrested after alleged threat, standoff

EVERETT – Police arrested a man who allegedly pointed a gun at an ice cream truck driver and demanded he turn off the music coming over the truck’s loudspeaker.

The man, 62, was arrested shortly after 2 a.m. Monday following a nearly six-hour standoff with police at the Woodside Crossing Apartments in the 400 block of 85th Place SW, according to Everett police Sgt. Boyd Bryant.

The ice cream vendor told police the suspect, who lives in the complex, came out, pointed a semiautomatic handgun at the driver and ordered him to shut the truck’s music off.

The vendor fled and the suspect went back inside his apartment. Officers were unable to persuade the suspect to come out of his apartment.

Police negotiators and tactical unit members were called to the apartments. Two surrounding buildings were evacuated and the adjacent four blocks of 85th Place SW were closed to traffic.

Negotiations continued with the man, who agreed to surrender to police about six hours later.

Police found several handguns in the man’s apartment.

He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree assault.

No one was injured.

The woman told the man to leave. When she attempted to get her cellphone in her vehicle, the man grabbed her, threw her down and continued to take her picture, according to the police report.
