Rocker Nick Oliveri has been arrested after a two-hour standoff with a SWAT team.

Cops swooped on the former Queens of the Stone Age star's home on Tuesday night after reports of a domestic bust-up, but the musician refused to allow them into the property, according to TMZ.com.

A SWAT team was called amid fears Oliveri had a high-powered rifle at the Los Angeles residence - but after a two-hour siege the rocker gave himself up.

He was booked for felony domestic violence and later released on $100,000 bail.
