Cybelle's Hostage Story Did Come To A Good End...

Ok, I found the rest of the info on the hostage story. ....It's in the Chron, so I guess I missed this...

(03-10) 16:36 PST -- Oakland police hostage negotiators peacefully talked an armed customer out of Cybelle's Pizza at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and West Macarthur Boulevard after a one-hour standoff Saturday afternoon.
Employees called police after 2 p.m., when the man approached the counter with a handgun sticking out of the waistband of his pants, said Capt. Frank Lowe.
The customer didn't threaten anyone, but refused to leave the restaurant when patrol officers arrived and evacuated the employees and eight customers out the back door. The SWAT team was called and police blocked off streets.
Neighboring businesses were ordered to shut their doors and keep workers and shoppers inside.
A man who was with the armed suspect told police the two men had been up all night taking methamphetamine.
After an hour, the pizza customer came out and kneeled on the sidewalk with his hands behind his head. Officers put handcuffs on him and led him to a squad car.
The man, who was not identified by officers at the scene, was arrested for being under the influence and taken to a nearby hospital. Police said they were examining the gun to determine if any weapons charges might be brought.
