A 46-year-old man is in custody at this hour following a stand-off in Botwood that lasted several hours on Wednesday night. Police received a complaint of an assault at around 3 pm. When they went to arrest the man at a residence, he had barricaded himself inside and was forced out at around 1:30 a.m.
He now faces charges of assault, uttering threats and unauthorized possession of a firearm. NTV’s Colleen Lewis will have more details at 6 on the award-winning NTV Evening Newshour.
