An unemployed bouncer was arrested Friday after a standoff with police that ended when officers tossed a smoke bomb into the apartment where he was holed up, then went in after him. Police said Matthew Mclarnon of Farmington, distraught about being jilted by a former girlfriend, entered her Church Street apartment, then barricaded himself and her inside, threatening to hurt himself with a knife.
