Man Arrested After Standoff In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

 Police in Sioux Falls say they arrested a 38-year-old man after he threw a Molotov cocktail at a SWAT rescue vehicle during an hours-long standoff at his house.

The device did not ignite.

Officers responded to the home around 12:50 a.m. Friday after receiving a call about a possible suicidal person.

Police say that after the cocktail was thrown, SWAT team members shot in pepper spray and Johnny Jay Thomas came out around 9:15 a.m.

Police say Thomas during the standoff also pointed a rifle at SWAT officers several times. Officers later found a one-pot meth lab in the house.

Thomas was charged with aggravated assault on law enforcement, manufacture of a controlled substance and other charges.

Attorney information was not immediately available.
