A potentially dangerous situation in Roanoke near the airport prompted police to close part of Airport Road this Tuesday morning.
Police say a man, known to have weapons, reportedly threatened his wife in a home just off of Airport Road. A SWAT team was called in and an arrest has been made. Police arrived on the scene shortly after 4:30 this morning.
The nearby Roanoke Memmick Education Center was made aware of the situation and decided to close for the day.
Airport Road is now open.
