City police are still trying to fill in the blanks in a bizarre standoff. Police received a call from a 39 year old man at 9:30 last night where he claimed to have 3 hostages in the 300 block of Bay Street. Staff Sergeant Frank Earley says at 11:30 police arrested the man and found no one else in the residence. No one was hurt and Earley says at this point police have no idea why the man called in the fake hostage situation. The 39 year old will be in court this morning.
