Children home during southeast side SWAT standoff

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Police say children were home during an overnight SWAT situation near Canal Winchester.

It started around midnight on Greys Lane.

Officers went to arrest a man on domestic violence charges. Police say the man refused to come out of the home. When police learned that he had three children inside, they called for SWAT.

After two hours of negotiation, the man eventually came out of the home and was taken into custody.

The three children slept through the whole ordeal, according to police. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
