LAST UPDATED: 02:03 p.m. HST, Nov 11, 2012

Police arrested a man this morning on suspicion of abuse of a family member and drug violations after he barricaded himself in a home overnight in Kalaeloa. The standoff displaced several families, who could not return to their homes in the neighborhood until this morning, police said.

The standoff on Guadalcanal Drive began just before midnight on Saturday, and the man was brought in to the Kapolei substation around 8 a.m., an officer at the station said. 

The situation started with an altercation at about 11:30 p.m. that escalated when the man barricaded himself in a home, according to Hawaii News Now. 

The American Red Cross helped to feed the displaced families this morning.  About 27 adults and 10 children were affected, according to Hawaii News Now.

It is why some parts of the country vote like they do, why they've armed themselves to the teeth. At the least, it should be the homeowners prerogrative to leave their own homes or not. Command them to stay locked in their homes? Okay. Make them leave? Not okay. There should be an option.

Those are not the sturdiest of houses out there. The cops might have been concerned about a firefight and bullets going through the walls of surrounding houses. Also there are quite a few kids in those houses; let the adults be idiots if they want to, but somebody needs to think about the kids
