Clinton Campaign office hostage situation resolved without violence

Reported by Chrish - November 30, 2007 -

FOX News and other outlets are reporting that there has been an arrest in the hostage drama in New Hampshire earlier today, and the campaign workers have been released unharmed.

FOXNews.com reports:

Police have arrested a man who took several hostages at the New Hampshire campaign office of Sen. Hillary Clinton.

The siege appeared to have been resolved peacefully Friday evening, when authorities took the suspect into custody about 6:15 p.m. EST. The people he held captive were released unharmed one by one throughout the afternoon and evening.

Authorities said Friday that the suspect was Leeland Eisenberg, who has a number of aliases. He walked into Clinton's Rochester, N.H., office claiming to have an explosive device strapped to his body, and held at least four people hostage for more than five hours.

Well thank goodness.
