Boise police arrested a wanted subject who they say was in a hotel room at the Red Lion at 22nd Street and Fairview Avenue on Saturday, according to a Boise Police Department press release.
Around 1:30, police said Jacob Taylor, 35, was taken into custody on charges of resisting and obstructing arrest and failure to appear.
Earlier in the day, they said Taylor had been contained to a room in the hotel and was believed to be armed. The sixth and seventh floors of the hotel were evacuated as a precaution, though Taylor did not have a weapon in his possession when he was arrested, BPD later said.
Police responded to a call about Taylor around 8 a.m., where he was said to have attempted to flee by climbing across hotel balconies several stories up.
Never miss a local story.
After an almost five hour standoff, negotiators were able to convince Taylor to peacefully surrender.
