Well, this was embarrassing for the local police, wasn’t it? Looks like police had an intense half-day-long standoff with… an empty house. They brought SWAT in and everything.

The incident[1] occurred in Redford Township, Michigan, a jurisdiction near Livonia which is a western suburb of Detroit.

From Click On Detroit:

The standoff began at about midnight.

Tear gas canisters were fired into the home and a robot was used to try and find the man inside.

The home was found empty when authorities entered late Saturday morning.

It appears to have stemmed from a domestic situation. A husband and wife’s argument became violent, sending the couple through the glass front door. The wife told police her husband stabbed her.

The wife said the argument started after she told her husband she wanted a divorce after about six weeks of marriage.

The husband had apparently left the home before police arrived.

No wonder it took so long to subdue the perp… he wasn’t even there!
