The man who was involved in a six-hour standoff with police at a Texarkana-area apartment on Monday talked repeatedly of committing suicide or wanting law officers to kill him, police said at a news conference today.The Monday standoff, which started just before noon when Wake Village arrived to serve an arrest warrant, ended more than six hours later when a police SWAT team lobbed tear gas into the apartment. David Wayne Brown, 46, of Wake Village surrendered, along with a woman who stayed in the apartment with him after two hostages were released. She was identified as Maegan Christine Burrows, 23, of Texarkana, Ark. "Burrows remained in the apartment of her own free will and was not a hostage," Wake Village Police Chief Ronny Sharp said. Brown wanted her to leave but she repeatedly refused, Sharp said. The standoff at Ashton Park Apartments began late Monday morning when police arrived to serve an arrest warrant charging Brown with forgery in Miller County, Ark. He was also wanted for questioning about a stolen car and a burglary, authorities said. Sharp said Brown refused to open the door and told officers he had a gun and hostages. A man and a woman who were also in the apartment were released two hours later after talks between Brown and a police negotiator, Sharp said. The man lived in the apartment, police said. The hostages told police that Brown had been using methamphetamine, Sharp said. Brown, who was the apartment complex's former maintenance man, was booked on charges of aggravated kidnapping and possession of a firearm by a felon, in addition to the forgery charge out of Miller County, police said. Burrows faces kidnapping charges as well as unrelated Miller county charges of probation violation. Brown had been involved in a similar standoff in Texarkana several years ago, Sharp said.Wake Village is located adjacent to Texarkana, Texas.
