A Waco man was arrested Sunday night after an argument with a neighbor and a nearly three hour standoff with police.

Niels Edward Olsen, Jr., 60, is being held on $10,000 bond for an aggravated assault charge.

Police say a call came in around 8 p.m. Sunday night to a home in the 2300 block of Sunnydell Avenue after a man reported his neighbor threatened him. The man told officers he kicked his ball into Olsen's yard and when he went to get it, Olsen threatened him with a gun. When officers went to confront Olsen, they say he refused to come out of his house.

Police and swat officers negotiated Olsen to come out of his house after about a two and a half hour stand-off.
