Police Arrest Ohio Man After 4-hour Standoff
A nearly 4-hour standoff ended peacefully yesterday between police and a man with a gun in Chillicothe.
The man’s wife says the two had a domestic dispute about “mental issues” and he threatened to burn their house down. Smoke was seen coming from the home after she had escaped.
WBEX-AM radio reports the man fired more than 10 shots into the neighborhood when police tried to move in. Police say he was under the influence of alcohol during the altercation. The unidentified man now faces charges of domestic violence or domestic menacing and inducing panic.
Phone records show a Clifford Johnson living at the address of the standoff. Calls to the residence were not answered.
