If that is the same fellow that was sitting with his sign near the entrance of the Lucky's store, sitting in his electrical scooter-chair, I remember seeing there that very morning, as my wife and myself went to the store. I believe he was a vet, as indicated by his sign.

Is the term "armed standoff" really appropriate for the title and description of this story? The man claimed to have a gun, but none was ever seen and it was later determined that he was unarmed.
I suppose the term "standoff" could be used since the man was forcing the police to take some sort of action, which they accomplished in a very controlled and safe manner.

Step out of line and the man come take you away.
