TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - A SWAT team surrounded a home early Friday to take a man into custody. It began when a woman called police over a domestic dispute on Arlington near Toronto in south Toledo.
Court documents say Brian Babb, 30, punched and pushed his fiancee, Angela Hahn.
When police arrived they tried to arrest Babb, but after briefly speaking to him they say he slammed the door and refused to cooperate, barricading himself in the home.
A SWAT team was then called in because there were reports of guns possibly being in the home. The SWAT team fired tear gas into the residence. Neighbors initially thought that was gunfire.
Officers eventually entered the home and pulled out Babb. He was put into the back of a police vehicle and taken into custody.
Ammunition was found in the home, but there is no word yet on whether guns were found.
The whole situation lasted about four hours.
Hahn says it all began as a verbal argument and police went too far.
"I told them I would give them access. They denied me and this is what happened," said Hahn. "They didn't need to bust every window of this building out. This was uncalled for."
Neighbors say they have seen problems at the house before and that Babb has a lengthy rap sheet.
Babb is currently behind bars, being held on a $200,000 bond. He's facing charges of domestic violence, assault and obstructing official business.
