GTV NEWS: UPDATE - Standoff suspect agrees to plea deal

Alonzo Gamble

A man arrested after an hours-long standoff in Grand Rapids has entered into a plea deal. 
Alonzo Montez Gamble pleaded guilty Monday to one count of felony assault with a dangerous weapon. As part of the deal with prosecutors, he will be sentenced to a maximum of one year in the county jail. Additionally, the three other counts Gamble faced -- a second count of assault with a dangerous weapon, a count of resisting and obstructing police and one count of interfering with a communications device -- were dropped.

Gamble, 24, was arrested after a four-hour standoff in which he allegedly held his recently separated girlfriend against her will inside a Grand Rapids apartment during the morning of Nov. 23. The woman was not hurt. 
Sentencing is set for Jan. 14.
