A man is now in custody after he barricaded himself inside a North Austin home Thursday afternoon.

Police went to the residence, located on Fairfield Drive near Lainer High School, around 3:20 p.m. to serve a warrant. The suspect was wanted for violation of probation by possession of a controlled suspect and evading police in a vehicle.

The local SWAT team was called in when the man would not leave the residence. He came out about two hours later.
