UPDATE: I-88 open; Iowa standoff suspect in custody

ROCK FALLS – The Interstate 88 standoff is over and the Iowa man wanted on a stalking warrant there is in custody, Whiteside County Sheriff John Booker said.

I-88 was closed from the Rock Falls entrance to the Walmart Distribution Center for more than 4 hours this afternoon while State Police negotiated with the man, who led police on a chase from LeClaire, then locked himself in his car around 1 p.m. The Prophet Road overpass also was closed as a precaution.

LeClaire police and multiple local agencies were involved.

No shots were fired, and the man was taken to CGH Medical Center to be checked out, Booker said.

He will be booked into Whiteside County Jail until he can be returned to Iowa to face charges there.
