HUNTSVILLE -- A man who threatened to kill himself sparked a three hour standoff in Huntsville Sunday.

Sheriff's officials say the man told his family he wanted to end his life and then drove away from his home.

His family called 911, and deputies tracked the man to a road near Pineview Reservoir.

He was sitting in his truck, so officials called in SWAT and a crisis counselor.

The counselor was able to talk the man into coming out of his truck, and he turned himself in at about 4 p.m.
