Rosenberg standoff ends with man flooding hotel, causing over $3 million in damage

One man is behind bars following a standoff at a hotel in Rosenberg last month, officials said. 

It all started on June 28 when Rosenberg police responded to reports of a robbery at Motel 6, located at 27927 Southwest Freeway. 
As officers arrived and attempted to contact the reporting party, Landon Blayne Hutchins, 45, of Gonzales, Texas, made threats against the officers and barricaded himself inside a room.

Authorities said as officers were assessing the situation and evacuating hotel residents and staff, Hutchins began to cause extensive damage to this room. 

Officials stated that throughout the incident he continued to damage his room and ultimately flooded the entire hotel.
