Suspect arrested in SWAT standoff near Prescott

PRESCOTT, AZ - A man considered armed and dangerous with a history of assaults on officers is in custody after a standoff with Yavapai County Sheriff's SWAT team.

Sheriff's officials say 56-year-old Daniel Lohmeier was wanted for a probation violation and felony warrants as well as missing a mandatory court date on Wednesday.

The Maricopa County probation office asked the sheriff's office to locate Lohmeier at his parents' home in Prescott.

Deputies arrived at the home about 3 p.m. Wednesday and began negotiating with Lohmeier, who was alone in the house and refused to come out.

Three hours later, he came out of the home and was arrested.

It was unclear Thursday if Lohmeier has an attorney yet.
