Police: King County sheriff's deputy arrested after standoff

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE, Wash. -

(AP) - Authorities say a King County sheriff's deputy who has been on paid administrative leave barricaded himself in his Seattle apartment building, prompting a 13-hour standoff that ended with his arrest.
  
The Seattle Times reports that police used robots Wednesday afternoon to breach two doors before officers went in and found the deputy in a bathroom with small cuts to his hands.
  
King County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ryan Abbott said the deputy has been on paid administrative leave since March, pending an evaluation of his fitness for duty.
  
Seattle police arrived at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday in response to a domestic-violence-assault call. The alleged victim left the apartment building before making the call.
  
The police response included closing off streets in the area, using "flash-bangs" and using a public address system to call for the deputy to surrender.
