Police: Idaho hostage released, suspect arrested
Police say hostage released, suspect arrested after standoff at southern Idaho hotel
By The Associated Press

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) ' Police say a suspect is in custody and a hostage has been released unharmed and after a three-hour standoff at a Twin Falls hotel that left one officer with a gunshot to the leg.

Twin Falls Police Department spokesman Luke Allen says negotiators talked with the suspect for about a half-hour before taking him into custody. Neither the suspect nor the hostage has been identified by police.

Police say the trouble started after a state trooper tried to pull over a motorist who instead prompted a high-speed chase Friday morning. The motorist crashed near the Hampton Inn; a passenger was apprehended but the driver ran inside the hotel.

An Idaho State Police trooper who was chasing the man was shot in the leg and is being treated at a hospital.
