A brief standoff at the Comfort Inn off the 250 Bypass in Pantops on Thursday ended peacefully.

Police were checking on a man's mental state at the hotel, and found him sitting in a car with a firearm.

A SWAT team was able to get the man out of the car unharmed after about two hours.

He was then taken into custody for an evaluation. So far, no charges have been filed.
