COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- A man wanted by Colorado authorities is in custody after he fell through a ceiling while being chased by police and took refuge in a bathroom.

Colorado Springs police say 27-year-old Andrew Stiern burst into Comfort Dental on Thursday and attempted to escape through the roof. But the attempt failed when he fell through the ceiling.

Police say he then barricaded himself inside a bathroom and refused to surrender. After negotiating with police, Stiern turned himself in.

Officers say they were trying to take Stiern into custody for three active felony warrants. Police say he's now facing additional charges.
