Police Standoff At Travelodge Motel Ends Peacefully

Early Thursday morning authorities were called just after midnight, and a standoff ensued at the Travelodge Motel in Beatrice. Adam Wolken had apparently forced his way into a room occupied by two women he knew from previous relationships. He was armed with a handgun and long rifle and issued multiple threats. One of the women and a small child were released soon after the incident began, the other woman later escaped unharmed. Wolken was apparently prompted by domestic issues with one of the women, and has a criminal background. He surrendered and was arrested by authorities some three hours after the standoff began. No shots were fired, and no injuries reported.
