Our top story tonight - A standoff in Irwinton that started yesterday apparently wrapped up a short time ago.. Tom George is in Irwinton with the latest... Tom?

Earlier... We were able to talk with the police chief of Jeffersonville.... Oscar Basley.

For him...This situation was a little more personal.

I actually knew Mr. Hendrey for several years. He actually called me and told me that the gun wasn't where he said it was and that he actually had the gun and that's when I actually called sheriff chapman and told him what was going on, that I was actually headed over here to the county.

Once again, the situation is now over in Irwinton and Hendrey will undergo evaluations while he is in custody.

Treat and foster them... until they're ready for adoption.

<we've got to find a special foster for him because he's terrified of men and white hats>

<fostering gives us a chance to know these issues if they were just in a kennel all day I wouldn't know that. >

But there was a problem... the city of warner robins... Only allows a maximum of three dogs in each home.

<we've got dogs that have been shot, runover, used for dog bait, sometimes they have to stay somewhere longer and since we're foster based they all need a home to go to >

So she asked council to waive the rule for her.

<she had to go to city hall and fill out a waiver form which is a twenty-five dollar fee and we had a post a sign in her front yard fifteen days before the council meeting >

and they did... Now she can hold up to six dogs at one time.

<this allows me to bring in dogs to foster while they're getting better until they can go to another foster or until they get adopted.>
