While investigating threats, investigators saw Clark had a weapon and requested SWAT to respond, Chief Deputy Rob Streck said.  

Following several hours of dialogue with Clark, hostage negotiators were able to get him to surrender, ending the standoff peacefully just before noon, Streck said.  

SWAT and deputies were sweeping the house after receiving reports Clark might have booby-trapped parts of the house to catch fire if doors were opened, according to Streck. 

Clark was released from jail days after the March 31 standoff but was on home detention, Streck said.  

Potential charges for the incident Wednesday are still pending, but several charges are possible, according to investigators.  

No injuries have been reported.
