LACY LAKEVIEW, TX (KXXV) -

A man is in custody after a SWAT incident Thursday afternoon. 

Bellmead police said that 48-year-old Michael Andrew Sowder was arrested after a standoff. The incident stemmed from an earlier incident that happened earlier Thursday. Police said that Sowder has arrived a hotel located in the 1300 block of Behrens Circle. Authorities say he intended to assault his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend. He brandished a machete and began causing damage to the motel room door. The ex-girlfriend received a laceration. 

Sowder left but returned around 3 a.m. and displayed a shotgun. Police said that he fired a round and made threatening gestures to the ex and her boyfriend. 

Sowder was located at a home on the 100 block of Pecan Street in Lacy Lakeview. When officers tried to serve a warrant, Sowder would not comply. 

McLennan County SWAT assisted. SWAT made multiple attempts to get Sowder to exit the home. SWAT eventually deployed CS gas into the home. Sowder eventually came out. 

No other injuries were reported in the incident. 

Sowder was taken to the McLennan County Jail and faces three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
