A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after police said a car was driven at pedestrians in a County Durham town.
No-one was hurt in the incident, which police said happened in the Little Eden area of Peterlee on Tuesday afternoon.
A 26-year-old local man was later arrested after a five-hour stand-off with officers at an empty house in the town's Barsloan Grove.
Durham Police said the property had suffered "significant damage".
A force spokesman said a forensic examination of the house was being carried out.
