Police Officers Have 11-Hour Stand Off To Find It Was With An Empty House

American police have really outdone themselves after they had an 11-hour standoff with an empty house.

They were under the impression that a man had barricaded himself in the home following a physical altercation with his wife. Reports show that the couple's argument had become violent after the female asked her husband of six weeks for a divorce.

The couple had even smashed through the glass front door, and the female claimed that her husband had even stabbed her. So, understandably, police were cautious.

They probably should've checked to see if he was actually home though...


The standoff started at midnight and didn't end until 11am the next day. According to ClickOnDetriot, tear gas canisters were fired into the home and a robot was used to try and find the man inside. Several streets were blocked off in the process.

And then...


Well, that's got to be embarrassing.

It's not yet known whether or not the police got their man in the end.
