A Butte man has turned himself over to Veterans Affairs officials after a two-hour standoff with police outside his home.

Butte police officers arrived at the man’s home Monday night after receiving a report from Veterans Affairs that he was armed and threatening to hurt himself.

Police set up a perimeter around the home and tried to communicate with the man for about two hours until officers determined that he had gone to sleep.

Butte Sheriff John Walsh told the newspaper that the man committed no crime and so police had no authority to enter his home and take him into custody.

Walsh says the man voluntarily went to the VA hospital in Helena on Tuesday morning and is being evaluated.
