    Apparently there's a standoff going on in Orange County CA where a guy has barricaded himself inside his house, making threats, saying he has a bomb, etc.

    Neighbors have said that he used to be a wonderful neighbor, very helpful, took excellent care of his yard, etc. But, he recently lost his job and tailspinned into a depressive state of mind. Last night, a car repo agent attempted to come repo his car, which set him off, and thus caused the standoff.

    SWAT team and bomb squad officials are there, as well as numerous cops and LE, and his family was said to be en route to the scene.

    That's the latest from what they said on Fox News about 10 min ago.

    Stream is up now. Helicopter zoomed-out to show several blocks surrounding the home cleared of traffic.

    I sure hope they can get a good mediator or a family member to intervene.

    Sad situation, imo.

    ETA: Returned to the stream to see the helicopter pulling-away from the scene. Now seeing aerials of the city.

    Looks like they're in this for the long-haul.

    I feel sorry for the neighbors that had to evacuate. Imagine not knowing when you can go home?

    JMHO

    Barricaded man described as unstable

    TUSTIN – A man who had recently received an eviction notice, and was described as increasingly volatile in recent days, rammed a U-Haul truck into a tow truck Wednesday morning when he saw that his car was being repossessed, authorities said.

    The man has since sealed himself inside his one-story home in an unincorporated part of Tustin, prompting a nine-hour standoff between him and SWAT
