A man surrendered to the Springfield Police Department's Special Response Team (SRT) shortly before 9:30 Tuesday morning after a standoff at a home in the 800 block of North Douglas Avenue. That section of the road was closed between Nichols Street to the north and Central Street to the south.  James Varnum, 29, of Springfield, had a warrant for his arrest issued by a judge in June after he failed to appear in court to face of charge of driving with a revoked driver's license.
