COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The man involved in a stand-off with Columbus law enforcement is currently in jail with no bond.

The Muscogee County Jail confirmed Terry Luke has been charged with battery with physical visible harm, trafficking methamphetamine and possession, selling, manufacturing ecstasy with intent to distribute.

The 39-year-old man barricaded himself in a room at the Motel 6 on Victory Drive after bondsmen came to the location and tried to serve Luke with a warrant. He missed a court appearance Friday for several traffic violations.

Luke had a woman locked in the room with him, but let her go unharmed about an hour after they were in the room together.

Luke surrendered to police Friday evening after his wife came to the motel and talked with him.
