Man arrested following police stand off in Whitewater Township

WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Whitewater Township man was arrested following a police stand off Wednesday afternoon.

Police were called to the 8100 block of Mill St. in Whitewater Township around 11:30 am. Police were responding to a domestic violence call made by the daughter of Timothy Sweeney. Sweeney had reportedly made threats to physically harm his daughter.

Once police arrived at the house, they were refused entry by Sweeney, and began to make threats to the Hamilton County deputies that were on the other side of the door.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Special Response Team was called to the scene and neighbors were able to establish contact with Sweeney.

After a nearly two hour stand off, police were able to enter the apartment and arrest Sweeney. He was then charged with one count of domestic violence and two counts of aggravated menacing.
