WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (WMC) - A standoff took place at a West Memphis hotel Thursday.

Officials say a wanted person was barricaded inside the Econo Lodge on South Service Road.

The suspect was taken into custody shortly after 1 p.m.

Randolph County Sheriff Kevin Bell identified the suspect as 44-year-old Daniel Seth Roberts.

Roberts had a warrant for his arrest after failing to appear in court.

Roberts was previously charged with battery for swinging a machete at a Randolph County deputy back in October 2021.
