Pocatello Police arrested a US Army deserter after a short show down early Thursday morning.

Police Lieutenant Paul Manning says 20-year-old Brian Lee Lyons was located at 745 W. Bridger at 3:53 a.m.

While officers were outside the home officers said Lyons armed himself with a rifle and exited the house. After a challenge from officers, he re-entered the house.
