Deputies Arrest Ellensburg Man after 16 Hour Standoff

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash. - Kittitas County Sheriff Deputies say a 16 hour standoff ended peacefully Thursday morning.

Deputies were serving a felony warrant for probation violations at a home on Park Creek Road, about 9 miles east of Ellensburg on Wednesday around 2 PM.

When deputies arrived, they say 55-year-old Daniel Soules had barricaded himself in a shop, armed with a weapon.

Soules told deputies he was armed, and threatened to shoot law enforcement and himself. The Kittitas County Special Response Team and Ellensburg Police Special Response Team responded to the scene.

Law enforcement spent the night securing the area and negotiating with Soules.  Deputies say they utilized CS gas, and Soules surrendered around 6:30 AM on Thursday. 

Deputies say they found a .22 caliber rifle in the shop, but no one fired any shots during the ordeal. Sheriff Deputies booked Soules on the felony warrant with other charges now pending.

Soules was convicted of fourth-degree assault with sexual motivation back in January, after a plea deal reduced his charges down from rape.
