EAGLETOWN, Okla. (KXII) -- A standoff in McCurtain County Thursday lands two behind bars.
McCurtain County Sheriff Kevin Clardy says his office got a tip about a man with numerous felony warrants hiding out in Eagletown.

Clardy says deputies and OHP Troopers surrounded the house and had to use tear gas to get people they believed to be armed out of the attic where they were hiding.

The sheriff says 18-year-old Donny Kale Middlebrooks and 30-year-old Steven Kessler were arrested on preexisting warrants.

No one was hurt.
