SWAT situation ends in suspect’s arrest

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

A SWAT standoff in St. Petersburg has ended, but not before a last-ditch jump out of a second story window.

For more than five hours, the SWAT team surrounded a home on 28th Street North.

Deputies say Martiego J. Wallace was on the run when he barged into a random home down the street.

The family who lived there got out and called for help.

After five hours of trying to coax him out, deputies say Wallace jumped out a second story window and tried to escape.

But it didn't work, and he was arrested.
