A Johns Creek man whose mother said was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder surrendered to police late Sunday after a nearly 10-hour standoff at his home.

The standoff, at the home on Tanners Spring Drive, began around 2 p.m. after the man's mother called police for help getting her son to a hospital, police spokeswoman Rosemary Taylor said. She identified the man as Johnnie Crosby McCarthan, 30.
