Mike DiBiase, son of WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase, was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning after a standoff with Amarillo Police and SWAT teams reports ConnectAmarillo.com.
“According to APD, the incident began at 11:12 Wednesday night after officers received information that a man wanted for a parole violation was in the 3900 block of northwest 12th. APD said the suspect was reportedly inside the building where several business are located and was seen by an employee attempting to break through a wall between businesses.”
“APD attempted to make contact with the suspect however attempts were unsuccessful as officers learned the suspect may have access to weapons inside the building. Knowing the escalated danger of the situation, SWAT and APD negotiators were brought in to assist with the situation. APD also mobilized a remote control robot to make its way through the building in an attempt to locate the subject.”
Sgt. Brent Barbee with The Amarillo Police Department explained why the standoff lasted so long.
"This was probably one of the most difficult building searches I have ever seen the guys on the swat team take on, just from my point of view. It was a large building that was subdivided into smaller areas, there were small offices that had false roofs inside, there were a large number of boxes and shipping containers, there was a lot of furniture, there were small rooms."
