Police BulletinPolice standoff ends peacefully
An emotionally disturbed man held Pleasanton police at bay for about 90 minutes Monday while holding a gun on himself. Traffic was closed for about an hour and 45 minutes during the standoff, on Stonedale Drive from Springdale Avenue to Maywood Drive.
The incident began at about 9 p.m. when the man's wife found a suicide note and called police, who found him in his car near the intersection of Stonedale Drive and Valley View Court, a news release said. The man ultimately surrendered and was placed on psychiatric hold; the report said a .38-caliber revolver was found at the scene.
