37 year old Norman Thompson had been holed up in a house in Mexico since noon. He’s the same man who made national headlines last week, when he leaped from a third story window in Lewiston to escape arrest. A photographer captured the jump on film, and the photo was distributed around the country.
Family members say Thompson has mental health issues, and problems with drug abuse. They called police on Thursday, fearing for Thompson’s well-being.
The standoff was finally resolved around midnight when police took Thompson into custody. He was not injured.
