LOGAN, Utah -- A man will face several charges after a traffic stop on a vehicle with homemade license plates led to a police standoff on a busy street in Logan Monday night.

Logan Police said an officer pulled a vehicle over near 400 North Main Street around 5 p.m. Monday because the vehicle had homemade license plates.

The driver implied he was armed but declined to cooperate with police during the traffic stop.

Capt. Tyson Budge of the Logan Police Department said because of the busy location, numerous officers were nearby and responded.

“The location is horrible, because it’s 400 North Main, it’s one of the busiest intersections in the state so we’ve had to make a lot of accommodations," Budge said.

The Cache County Sheriff arrived on scene and was ultimately able to convince the man to leave his vehicle. The man was picked up by his wife, who was allowed to take him home.

Police tweeted the situation had been resolved just after 7 p.m.

Budge said the man will face several charges in connection with the incident and the department is not releasing his name until those charges are filed.
