SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) - Sparks Police have identified the man arrested after a three-hour standoff in the Wingfield Springs area as David Schaeffer, 49.

Schaeffer's ex-wife had been staying in the home on Ingleston Drive. While Police were told there was a Temporary Protection Order (TPO) to keep Schaeffer away from his ex-wife, no such TPO was found.

Negotiators talked the man out of the home, and he was taken into custody. No injuries were reported.

Schaeffer is now in the Washoe County Jail on a charge of Obstructing and on a hold for a Felony Warrant out of California.
