— A Wake Forest woman was in custody Wednesday after a four-hour standoff with Wake County deputies.

The standoff began at about 11 a.m. at a house on Pageland Drive when deputies tried to serve a warrant at the house, said Phyllis Stephens, spokeswoman for the Wake County Sheriff's Office.

A woman identified as Margaret Horan locked herself inside with a gun, Stephens said.

The incident ended at about 3 p.m. Horan was arrested and charged with misuse of 911.

No one was injured in the incident.

    Pang, if we are so bad, put a badge on and put your money where your mouth is. I bet in one day you would have just a little more respect for the job and the vast majority that accept the challenge of being a law enforcement officer.

    Really moderators? Some of my comments have been removed for reasons I still don't know. And I have never done anything so low as cheering on the murder of innocent poeple as "pangb007" has posted.
