MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. — A four-hour standoff early Monday in Waukesha, Wis., ended with the arrest of a man who had armed himself with a sword and guns.

Police officers and sheriff's deputies surrounded a home in Menomonee Falls about 1 a.m. after the man's mother called and said her 28-year-old son was acting irrationally.

Authorities tell WTMJ-TV the mother left the home before calling police. The man later armed himself with guns and refused to come out of the house. About 5 a.m. he complied with officers' order and was arrested without incident.
