SWAT team arrests man after 6-hour standoff

KALISPELL — A SWAT team has arrested a fugitive after a six-hour standoff at a Kalispell motel.

Police Chief Roger Nasset says officers tossed three flash bangs and then stormed the room shortly before 5 p.m. Friday and arrested Thomas Mulligan.

He's accused of an alleged parole violation stemming from a kidnapping conviction.

Police held off making any moves for several hours because Mulligan claimed to have a gun and said he would not be taken alive.

Nasset says when it became clear efforts to talk Mulligan out weren't going anywhere, they decided to storm the room.

A 17-year-old male was with Mulligan and placed in protective custody.

Mulligan was jailed after being checked by medics for minor injuries.
