Spokane County (Wash.) Sheriff's SWAT officers arrested two sovereign citizens who refused to exit their truck after a nearly three-hour standoff in Otis Orchards on Wednesday.

The incident began after a sheriff's detective spotted a red truck with an invalid license plate. A sheriff's deputy and Liberty Lake officer provided backup, and the three officers pulled over the vehicle at North Starr Road and East Kildea Road, reports the Spokesman Review.

Michael Francis Hicks, 55, and David Ray Galland, 58, refused to exit the vehicle and were eventually taken into custody after SWAT officers cut them from their seatbelts.
