An Oak Lawn man was so angry he lost power over the weekend that he threatened to shoot someone over it. Not exactly a bright idea.
But at 7:45 a.m. Saturday, someone from the house dialed 911 and hung up.
This time, when officers arrived, the man was armed with a gun.
Police surrounded the house, and a standoff took place for the next three hours.
That's one rough service call.
The man—whose name was not released—was eventually arrested and taken to a hospital for a medical evaluation.
