CARLSBAD (CNS) - A man was jailed Sunday following a fight between two roommates, which led to an hours-long SWAT standoff in Carlsbad.
   
The incident started around 1:20 p.m. Saturday in the 1300 block of Laurel Tree Lane near Palomar Airport Road, according to Carlsbad police Lt. Greg White.
   
The victim called 911 and said his roommate Louie Duran, 43, had sprayed him with pepper spray and threatened him with an assault rifle.
   
Nearby apartment unit residents were evacuated, as Carlsbad SWAT officers and a crisis negotiation team were deployed, White said.
   
Duran emerged unscathed after more than five hours, at around 6:30 p.m., and was arrested.
   
Duran was booked into the Vista Detention Facility in lieu of $50,000 bail, suspected of assault with a deadly weapon, displaying a weapon and assault.
   
Detectives recovered a loaded shotgun and loaded assault rifle from the apartment, White said.
