Man Arrested Without Incident After Layton Standoff
LAYTON, Utah – A suspect was taken into custody peacefully after a standoff lasting more than three hours in Davis County.
The suspect was identified as 47-year-old Lane Eric Olsen.
Officials with the Layton City Police Department said officers responded to a home at 72 West and 900 South after reports of a domestic situation around 1:15 p.m. Saturday.
They said a woman at the address reported an issue she was having with her 47-year-old son. She said Olsen had been damaging property that belonged to her including tearing off cupboards and breaking apart the dishwasher.
She was able to get out of the home, but Olsen was still inside. She asked him to leave four times before police got involved.
Officers tried to contact Olsen through a PA system, but they said he barricaded himself inside the home.
After about three hours and more than 50 phone calls, he answered his phone and spoke with police.
SWAT officers were then called to the scene. Investigators obtained a search warrant and were beginning to move on the house when Olsen came out on his own.
He was taken into custody without incident and arrested for domestic violence criminal trespass.
Investigators later said they found no evidence of domestic violence criminal mischief. They said he was only found to be refusing to leave the residence when requested by the victim and police.
