FRANKLIN, Ohio (WXIX) - A man has been arrested after an hour-long SWAT situation in Franklin, police say.

The incident happened on Maple Street in Warren County. Franklin Police Chief Brian Pacifico said officers responded to a domestic violence report just before 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

Police say they were attempting to arrest Steven Langdon, 49, on domestic violence charges when he refused to come out and barricaded himself in the home.

The victim told officers Langdon had a handgun and large knife.

When negotiations weren’t successful, police say, the SWAT team deployed gas into the house multiple times.

Eventually, according to Franklin Police, Langdon left the house and was arrested without further incident.

Langdon was transported to the Warren County Jail. He is held on no bond, awaiting his court date on August 17.

There are no reported injures from this incident.
