Standoff at Richland Motel Ends Peacefully

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, Wash.--Benton County Deputies, with the help of Richland and Kennewick police, surrounded Motel 6 this afternoon.

Deputies received information that 34-year-old Mark Emerson Clark of Benton City was staying at the motel.

When sheriffs arrived, clark barricaded himself inside his room. Authorities say Clark has multiple felony and misdemeanor warrants.

One motel guest called our station during the standoff, saying she was told by police not to leave her room.

Clark was wanted for a number of warrants. West Richland used a tasered on clark back in July after authorities say he wasn't cooperating. He hit his head after being tased.

Tonight he's in Benton County Jail.
