Federal officials went to the apartment to serve a warrant. As agents entered the apartment, they became concerned Frizzell may have had a weapon.
Police and sheriff's deputies closed off streets so they could talk to him. Deputies eventually made contact with Frizzell and convinced him to surrender.
"The ultimate goal on everyone of these we come out on," said Assistant Police Chief Chris Pugh, "is if it's a barricade, it's a hostage situation. It is negotiate and surrender. We don't want to have to use any force at all."
Police say two people were taken into custody but did not name the other subject. No weapons were found in the apartment.
PREVIOUS: Law enforcement officials arrest a man at an apartment complex on Evansville's east side this afternoon. It happened a little before 3 p.m. at the 4300 block of Spring Valley Rd. right next to the Timbers Apartment Complex on N. Green River Rd.
Police and sheriff's deputies closed off streets, so they could talk to a man in one of the apartments. Neighbors say the man missed some kind of court hearing earlier in the day. When officers showed up to get him, he went into his apartment and would not come out.
No word yet if he had any weapons in the apartment. The man surrendered around 3:30 p.m. and was taken into custody.
