A drunken argument Saturday night ended with an hourlong standoff with Benton County deputies in Finley.
Daniel James, 44, allegedly went home drunk and got into an argument with his housemates in the living room shortly before 6:30 p.m., the Benton County Sheriff’s Office said.
He allegedly walked into a bedroom, returned with a shotgun and pointed it at one of his housemates, investigators said.
A housemate wrestled the gun from James and fled with it.

Deputies and Kennewick police officers soon surrounded the home on the 21000 block of Finley Road.
After about an hour of talking to James through a loudspeaker, he came out of the residence.
No shots were fired and no one was hurt, the sheriff’s office said.
James was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of second-degree assault.
