CHARLESTON, WV -

UPDATE:

We have learned new details in a standoff situation in Carter County, KY.

Kentucky State Police said Larry Price, 47, was armed when they tried to serve arrest warrants Monday night.

The warrants stemmed from an incident over the weekend involving Price and a female relative.

The victim told troopers Price was threatening her and firing his gun at his Trumbo Road home.

Troopers tried to get Price to surrender peacefully when he barricaded himself inside his house, they said.  He was armed with a gun at the time and made threatening statements to troopers, they said.

Price was eventually taken into custody early Tuesday morning after troopers used a Taser on him.

He's in the Carter County Detention Center.

UPDATE:

A standoff situation in Carter County, KY, is over.

Larry Price is charged with wanton endangerment, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest. He is currently in the Carter County Detention Center.

Members of the Kentucky State Police Special Response Team responded to Price's home on Trumbo Road in Olive Hill Monday night.

Troopers tried to serve two arrests warrants on him.  They said he refused to comply with their requests and barricaded himself inside.

The standoff lasted more than eight hours.

First Class Trooper Michael Murriell said more details on his arrest will be released later today.

It's unclear whether or not Price came out on his own or if authorities had to use force to get him to surrender.

Murriell said considering the circumstances, the standoff ended the best way possible.

"At any point, anything from a speeding traffic stop could potentially turn violent, so we have to approach every situation with that in mind."
