Arizona police say a man threatening to detonate his recreational vehicle outside a Tucson police substation was arrested without incident after a nearly 10-hour standoff yesterday.

They say the man showed officers a can of gasoline and a hammer and said he had propane tanks and guns.

The name of the man wasn't immediately released Wednesday evening, AZCentral.com reports.

Tucson police Sgt. Pete Dugan said the man showed up at the West Side substation around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday. He walked up to the front door and tried to enter, but the doors were locked, Dugan said.

The unidentified man then rang an emergency button and tried to talk to police inside. But he sounded incoherent and police went outside to talk to him. By the time they arrived, the man had gone inside his RV and called 911. The dispatchers called officers at the substation and told them the man was threatening to blow up his RV, which was parked directly next to the building.
