Utah Man Updated Facebook Status During Standoff

June 22, 2011  | 

An armed man with a female hostage updated his Facebook page during a 16-your standoff with the Odgen (Utah) Police Department.

Jason Valdez, 36, issued six status updates, added 15 friends and responded to numerous comments posted by worried family and friends while police were engaged in a siege at an Ogden motel Saturday morning.

"I'm currently in a stand off wit these shady [expletive] from old, kinda ugly but ready for whatever, I love u guyz and if I don't make it out of here alive that I'm in a better place and u were all great friends," Valdez posted at 1:23 a.m. via an Android phone.

The incident began when police officers attempted to serve a felony warrant for failure to appear in court on a drug-related charge and Valdez barricaded himself in the motel room. When officers raided the room, Valdez shot himself in the chest.
