According to online jail records, Chad Yeaman, 36, faces two complaints of Burglary in the Second Degree.

Oklahoma City police said Yeaman checked into the Extended Stay America at Northwest Expressway and Meridian wearing a fake badge, a gun strapped to his leg and told hotel clerks he was an undercover federal agent.

During a standoff at the hotel, authorities said Yeaman set a mattress on fire, triggering the sprinkler system. Police tried several different tactics to get Yeaman to surrender, including flashbangs, however a robot forced through a doorway ended the standoff.
