After midnight on July 11th officers were called to the Motel 6 because a female was “yelling outside the motel.”
It turns out the female was yelling to get her children back in a domestic violence situation.
The officers then went to the Comfort Inn across the street in search of Christian Sandoval-Perez.
Once there, hearing someone screaming for help, officers encountered the suspect on the second level hallway holding a firearm.
Sandoval-Perez would not drop the gun during the 75 minute negotiation that followed.
The others in the hotel were evacuated.
The incident finally ended with the suspect’s arrest and charges of felony domestic battery, felony child abuse, false imprisonment and resisting.
His gun? It was an “imitation firearm.”
