WILLOWS, Calif. — A Willows man is at Glenn Medical Center under double guard today after allegedly threatening Wednesday morning to kill a Willows woman and harm police with an explosive device, while high on methamphetamine.

For authorities to take the man into custody, ending a tense 30-minute stand-off, they had to subdue him with two bean bag rounds, pepper spray bullets and a Taser stun gun.
