A man now faces a charge of terroristic threat of an officer after he was taken into custody following a two hour long standoff with police.

It happened at the Exxon located off Highway 290 at FM 2920 in Waller County.

A man called deputies saying he saw a deputy walk into the Jack in the Box restaurant nearby and planned to shoot the deputy when he came back outside. Dispatchers quickly got in touch with the deputy and told him to stay put.

Multiple deputies from both Waller and Harris County then arrived and surrounded the suspect. A negotiator got the man on the phone and listened to him talk about a recent divorce and his life in the military.

While the man was distracted, deputies fired a flash bang into the man's truck and pulled him out. They then determined the man never had a weapon.
