Standoff ends peacefully on stretch of Interstate 35 in northern Iowa

Northwood, Iowa – Interstate 35 in northern Iowa, near the Northwood exit, was closed for a couple of hours Tuesday afternoon as authorities negotiated with a motorist who’d been waving a gun at other vehicles.

Officer Dana Knutson of the Iowa State Patrol says just before one o’clock, Minnesota State Patrol started pursing a car.


Both northbound and southbound Interstate-35 was closed as a precaution.


The man was taken into custody and is being held in the Worth County jail awaiting arraignment on charges in Iowa. It is expected that he will face additional charges in Minnesota
