A local man is behind bars after an overnight standoff in the Heights.

Police eventually had to use force to get inside the home.

SWAT teams had to use a big battering arm to break through the burglar bars on the windows.

It all started with a neighbor called police to say her neighbor threw a brick at her.

After an 8-hour standoff SWAT teams threw tear gas in the man’s home and he surrendered.

Police say he has a history of mental health issues.
