A man is safe in a local medical facility after he allegedly threatened to harm himself Wednesday afternoon at a home in the 11800 block of Old Jeanerette Road in Iberia Parish.

According to a press release from Patrol Commander/PIO Captain Michael P. Hollier with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office, the man's stepmom told deputies that he had ran into the home where he had access to multiple guns. After at least four and a half hours, IPSO SWAT team members were eventually able to get inside and take custody of him without incident.

No criminal charges have been filed.
