    A Tuesday night standoff in Evansville ends peacefully with one man in custody.
    Officers were sent to the 600 block of Ravenswood Drive around 8:30 for a crisis intervention.
    Police say the man they went to check on refused to let them in, and that he may have had a weapon.
    Officers worked to stay in contact for 5 hours, and even used the swat team to break out windows, hoping to get his attention.
    The man eventually came out and surrendered just after 1 Wednesday morning.
    We're told he's been taken to a local hospital for a psychological evaluation.
    His name is not being released.
