One of Minnehaha County's Most Wanted is in jail following a standoff that lasted nearly eight hours last night.
Just before 2 a.m. Thursday morning, authorities arrested 25-year-old Derek Arapahoe on two felony warrants. Arapahoe wouldn't come out of a central Sioux Falls home when the Sioux Falls Area Warrant Task Force showed up.
Authorities had information that Arapahoe was armed with more than one weapon and had made threats toward law enforcement, so the SWAT team was called in and surrounded a home near 13th and Western. Nearby homes were also evacuated. After negotiating with Araphoe the standoff ended peacefully. Additional charges could be possible.
Araphoe now awaits his first appearance in court. There is no official word on when his appearance will take place.
