A man who was arrested Wednesday after a standoff with police in northwest Oklahoma City is named in multiple arrest warrants, including attempted burglary.

James Jones, 31, was arrested on those warrants in addition to complaints stemming from the standoff and possession of marijuana, police said.

A bail bondsman was trying to serve warrants on Jones at a house in the 200 block of NW 121 when he saw a man with a gun run back into the home, police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.

The elderly mother of Jones' girlfriend was believed to be in the home with him, Nelson said.

There were also children inside, who were allowed to leave the home, Nelson said.

Police negotiated with Jones for several hours before he was taken into custody.

According to police reports, Jones had multiple city warrants for traffic violations and had two felony warrants for attempted burglary and violation of a deferred sentence.
