A man was arrested and charged after police say he refused to come out of his hotel room on Tuesday.

According to Waco police, shortly before 2:30 p.m. Waco officers were attempting to serve a parole violation warrant on 31-year-old Tommy Sandoval.

It was reported that Sandoval was in a room at the Astro Motel located in the 3400 block of S. I-35.

Sandoval initially refused to come out of his hotel room and fled into the attic. He had access to the length of the rooms and refused to come down.

He was eventually persuaded to come down and was taken into custody without incident.

Sandoval was taken to the McLennan County Jail and is charged with parole violation.

The Texas Department of Public Safety assisted Waco police at the scene.

The incident was cleared around 3:45 p.m.
