They are still talking about it. Neighbors in the Silver Lake Apartments on the 600 block of W. Wilbur Avenue in Coeur d’Alene gathered in the parking lot Wednesday where police the previous night used an armored SWAT vehicle, flash bangs and pepper gas to arrest James L. Crile Jr., 42, on a misdemeanor warrant following an eight-hour standoff. Crile was wanted for two probation violations stemming from a violation of a no-contact order, and a conviction on a weapons charge/Ralph Bartholdt, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Has your neighborhood ever been the site of a police standoff with a dangerous individual?
