GREENSBORO, N.C. -- What a Methodist minister hoped would be a simple eviction turned into a four-hour standoff when his unemployed son refused to leave a house where he'd been staying rent-free.
The Rev. Liston Sellers says he was tired of letting his son live in the home he owns on Vandalia Road in Greensboro.
Police stormed the house and arrested 38-year-old Curtis Sellers about 2:30 p.m. yesterday after a standoff that shut down the road in front of the house. He was charged with resisting a public officer and hoax by false bomb.
When a deputy sheriff arrived with eviction papers he found a note on the door saying Curtis Sellers wouldn't leave. There also was a shoebox with wires leading inside the house. The box later was detonated by a bomb squad, but contained a device like a cell phone charger.
