A Beatrice man has been taken into custody after a nearly two-hour standoff with police.

Michael Haney was arrested a little before 2 p.m. on Wednesday. He was booked into Gage County Jail on suspicion of felony terroristic threats and misdemeanor domestic assault.

A jailer said Haney remained in custody on Thursday morning. Online court records don't list the case yet.

Police say a woman called 911 a little before noon Wednesday to say her husband, Haney, was threatening her while he handled weapons and ammunition.

Officers set up around the house, and nearby Paddock Lane Elementary School was locked down as a precaution.

Officers eventually made contact with Haney, and he came out around 1:45 p.m.

No shots were reported. Officers found four rifles in the house.
