Officers from the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Doniphan County Sheriff's Department, the Wathena Police Department and the Elwood Police Department surrounded the man's trailer at the Gaslight Acres mobile home park off US Highway 36.
The man was arrested shortly after 3 p.m. without incident.
Wathena Police Chief Raymond Hall said officers were called to the home after neighbors said the man was acting suspicious and paranoid. When they arrived, they learned he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
When officers tried to get inside to make an arrest, the man refused to come out. Two others inside the home came out when police arrived.
Bell was asked to stay in his home for now while police negotiated with the man.
