SAN ANTONIO (AP) – A man who barricaded himself in a South Texas hotel in an apparent drive-thru fast-food dispute is expected to face three counts of attempted capital murder.

 San Antonio police say nobody was hurt in the standoff that ended Sunday night.

Police say the customer, who allegedly was unhappy that the price of what he was ordering had gone up, is accused of shooting an air gun at the restaurant manager, displaying a semiautomatic assault rifle and pistol, then exchanging gunfire with three officers.

He drove away, but was captured after a three-hour standoff at the hotel. Sgt. Chris Benavides says tear gas had to be used to get the man out of the room. The weapons were recovered.

The suspect's name was not immediately released.
