A standoff ends after almost seven hours. Bryan Police say 43-year-old Dennis Dwayne Flowers turned himself in peacefully.

Around 9:45 a.m., authorities say a private investigator was going to serve a warrant on Flowers for drug and assault charges. According to court documents, the investigator located Flowers in a car driven by his daughter. His wife was also said to be in that car.

Authorities chased the car back to a home in the 4200 block of Old Hearne Road, where they Flowers jumped out of the car and ran into the home. The woman and girl were taken to a safe location by police.

"There's nothing usually wrong with this place," Bryan resident Pedro Ocampo said. "It's very clean and we just woke up to police. It's kind of scary."

Flowers barricaded himself in the home, and police spent the day trying to talk him out. Negotiators tossed in what they called throw phones. Police say he used them occasionally to communicate with them.

According to Brazos County Jail records, Flowers is no stranger to the law. In fact, he has been arrested 34 times in 19 years. Those charges include burglary, theft and aggravated assault.

Flowers now faces charges of evading arrest and unlawful restraint.
His bond is set at $20,000.
