An armed man barricaded himself Tuesday morning inside a Los Feliz home that reportedly belongs to director Spike Jonze, bringing LAPD and SWAT officers to the neighborhood, authorities said.
Los Angeles police responded to reports of a burglary at a house in the 4000 block of Farmouth Drive, a few blocks above Los Feliz Boulevard and below Griffith Park. KNBC-TV Channel 4 reported that the house belongs to Adam Spiegel, the legal name for Jonze, who was seen outside the home talking to officers.
According to LAPD officers, a man entered the home and locked himself inside with a knife. Police would not say whether the house belonged to the director Jonze, but The Times has confirmed that a house on the same block of Farmouth Drive belongs to Spiegel.
Video posted on Twitter showed SWAT units at the scene.
