A Texas fugitive was arrested Tuesday night after an hourslong standoff with a SWAT team southeast of Colorado Springs, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said.

Joshua Helton, 29, surrendered after a standoff that started with a disturbance call in the 6600 block of Ocean Avenue in Security, the Sheriff's Office said. He initially refused to come out but was arrested without incident about midnight.

Helton was wanted on a felony charge, but the Sheriff's Office did not elaborate.
