Traffic Stop Turns Into Standoff

By  | 

A routine traffic stop turned into an hour and a half standoff at a Colorado Springs intersection early Wednesday morning.

Around 1:30 a.m., officers pulled over a vehicle at Airport and Academy seen committing several traffic violations. But when police approached the driver, he reportedly slipped officers a note stating he wasn't coming out.

Officers set up containment around the car, then ordered everyone inside to come out. Two of the occupants complied and got out of the vehicle, but police say the driver repeatedly refused.

After 80 minutes of negotiations by phone and loud speaker, the driver got out of the car and was immediately arrested for an existing felony warrant, as well as several charges related to the standoff.

Police identify the driver as 45-year-old Adrian Hill. Passenger Patricia Labarge, 27, was reportedly arrested for an unrelated warrant.
