Barricaded suspect taken into custody in North Hollywood

A man was arrested in North Hollywood on Wednesday after barricading himself inside a house for more than three hours, police said.

The incident began shortly after 1 a.m. when officers received a call that a man had violated a restraining order by going to a residence in the 7000 block of Nagle Avenue, south of Sherman Way, said Lt. Brian Wendling of the Los Angeles Police Department’s North Hollywood Division.

The man, described as being in his mid 30s and under the influence of narcotics, told police that he had a gun and would harm them if they tried to enter the home, Wendling said. But he did not have a weapon and was taken into custody without any injuries.
