COEUR D'ALENE -- Police have arrested a man they say kidnapped a woman at gunpoint and held her prisoner for several hours.

Police said Sunday they arrested Douglas Standish at the Coeur d'Alene Resort Marina.

The 49-year-old Standish was wanted on a warrant for first-degree kidnapping after the incident Nov. 4 involving a former girlfriend.

She told authorities she escaped when he allowed her to leave a vehicle.

A week on the lam, Standish had apparently taken refuge Sunday in a boat at the marina after an evening in which he'd jumped into the frigid waters of Coeur d'Alene Lake to avoid resort security guards.

A boat owner said he discovered a Standish on his 34-foot craft Sunday morning.

Shortly thereafter, police searching for Standish took him into custody without incident.
