One man was arrested after an hours-long standoff in Midland.

The Midland Police Department tells CBS7 that Officers responded to the 2900 block of McDonald for a welfare check and possibly family violence.

When they arrived, officers saw a man run outside of a home and then barricaded himself in a truck, according to officials.

Investigators say the man, identified as Jody Cox, refused to come out and S.W.A.T. was called out to the scene.

MPD tells us that the standoff lasted two hours Wednesday evening until Cox was arrested without incident.

Officials say that Cox is now being charged with felony-family violence.
