ANCHORAGE- A Wasilla man is under arrest after a stand-off with State Troopers.
Troopers say 42-year-old Jose Pacheco was arrested about 1:30 Tuesday morning on charges of assault on law enforcement officers.
Troopers, along with Wasilla police, responded to a home on north Tanana Street after a report of gunshots and possible victims.
They say Pacheco shot at officers several times with weapons to include a pellet rifle and a hunting bow.
Troopers say after several hours of negotiations, Pacheco gave up.
No victims were at the home, and no one was reported injured.
Pacheco is being held on a $500,000 bail.
