PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — After a three-hour standoff with a man who barricaded himself in a room Tuesday afternoon, SWAT officers used a slice of pizza to get the man out. 

Evan Mclemore was arrested after police say he locked himself in his brother’s room and told police he had a gun to his head and that he was not going back to prison. Mclemore refused to come out after being told to multiple times. 

Crisis negotiators were able to get a slice of pizza which caused Mclemore to come out. Once he got out and took a few steps down the hall, the SWAT team took him into custody. 

Mclemore’s stepmother accused him of harassment and making threats using electronic communication. She claims he also attempted to strangle his father earlier this month.
