The Barron County Sheriff's Department reports the arrest of a 46-year-old man at the end of a standoff which lasted four-and-a-half hours. 

Deputies had responded to a call from a woman who said she was trapped inside her mobile home and her boyfriend, Darin Jenkins, had a gun and was threatening to shoot her.  Deputies were able to get the woman out of the home in Rice Lake's Anderson Trailer Court.  Her name hasn't been released.  The trailer court was evacuated and an Emergency Response Team entered the home at about 3:30 a-m, taking Jenkins into custody.
