A father faces multiple charges after police say they found a loaded gun four feet from his 2-year-old son.

Michael McMillen Jr, 28 of Cleves, faces charges of endangering children, inducing panic and domestic violence.

According to court records, McMillen attacked woman at their East State Road residence about 1 a.m. Saturday. He is accused of shoving her across the living room and into the kitchen, throwing soda and toys at her and knocking off her glasses, demanding she go out to buy him cigarettes.

She managed to escape and fled to a neighbor's house to call 911.

When Cleves police arrived, he refused to answer the door, court records state.

Officers summoned the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office SWAT team to help take McMillen into custody, but he surrendered before they arrived, said Sgt. Steve Ventre.

Once authorities got into the home, they found a 12-gauge shotgun with seven rounds four feet from the toddler.

A Hamilton County Judge on Monday morning set bond for McMillen at $3,000.
