White Christmas was his favorite Christmas tune!
A police standoff with an armed man in Pennsylvania finally came to an end after 10 hours of negotiations, gunfire and Christmas carols.
The standoff began Christmas night when police responded to the home of 34-year-old Nathaniel Lewis to do a wellness check. His family hadn't heard from him and was concerned because his wife had left him. When they arrived, Lewis had barricaded himself inside the home and fired four shots toward the officers. Police responded by firing several shots back into the house. No one was hit in the volley.
The standoff continued for 10 hours, Early the next morning, Lewis offered to give himself up if one of the SWAT team officers would serenade him with Nat "King" Cole's version of "White Christmas." So one of the officers stepped up and gave him exactly what he wanted. He sang the Christmas carol until Lewis eventually surrendered and was taken into custody.
He faces 11 counts of attempted homicide of a police officer. (FOX News)
