LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Police alerted people Wednesday morning of a stand off situation.

What started as a domestic dispute escalated into a standoff situation with Lansing police.

At 8:50 Wednesday morning the couple left the home peacefully after negotiating with police.

At 4:30 a.m. police responded to a domestic dispute at a home on the 600 block of Seymour Ave. near Lapeer St. Police say the man refused to allow them inside, which led to a standoff lasting almost five hours.

"It's quite the visual with the police cars and command center, what have you, but that's what we do. That's what our tactical team does. That's what they train for is they just want to make sure everyone is safe and we bring this to a peaceful resolution," Police said.

When the couple walked out of the home around 9 a.m., they were ushered to a police vehicle.

The 28-year-old man was arrested for obstructing and resisting.

The 22-year-old woman was not arrested.

Police are questioning her because they consider this matter an assault.

Police confirmed the two individuals are in a relationship and are currently searching the house.

There were no known weapons on the couple when they exited the home, and police say neither of them were hurt.

A two-block perimeter around the home remains closed to traffic.

The situation does not involve LCC and will not effect campus, according to reports.
