SOUTH HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) _ New Hampshire State Police have safely arrested an armed man sought in an area of southern New Hampshire near the Massachusetts border after an earlier confrontation with police at his home.
       
Maj. David Parenteau said Tuesday night that officers found 44-year-old Anthony Reardon back in his South Hampton home about five hours after they had condoned off the nearby area with a large police presence.        

Parenteau said the first officers who came to his home Tuesday afternoon found Reardon with weapons he refused to surrender.        

He said Reardon then tried to get away in an unoccupied police car, but abandoned it in nearby woods. Shots were fired during the incident but no one was hurt.
