The incident lasted several hours because the man refused to cooperate with officers or exit the home, police say.

However, the man was arrested just after midnight. No one was injured in that incident, police say.

On Saturday morning, the man, whom police did not identify, was brought to a judge by telephone and charged with unlawful confinement.
