After a daylong standoff in a house in the Interstate 40-Cherry Street area, a man surrendered to police at 7:17 p.m. Saturday, authorities said.
The standoff had closed the westbound lane of nearby I-40 for most of the day and traffic had been backed up for more than three miles at one time.

“The negotiators kept talking to him. At times he would talk to us and at times he would not. It seemed he had mood swings of some type that prevented him from wanting to talk to us,” he said.
