A man who crawled under his ex-girlfriend's house has surrendered to police after a seven hour standoff in Springfield.

Police say the man tried to get into the woman's house near Patterson and Commercial around 2:30 Tuesday morning.

When she refused to let him in, he got in the crawlspace and called 911, threatening to kill himself or burn down the house.

He surrendered around 9:30 a.m.

He was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
