STAMFORD, CT — About 30 Stamford police officers, including members of the department’s Special Weapons and Tactics team, were deployed to Birchwood Road Tuesday night to remove a man who had barricaded himself in his home, reports the Stamford Advocate. No injuries were reported.
Nicholas Miter, 38, was taken into custody after police exploded two flash grenades to surprise him, and also used a police dog to convince him to come out of the bedroom he had locked himself in. Authorities were at the scene for more than an hour before they were able to get him out.
Miter was charged with threatening and interfering with police, in connection with him allegedly threatening to kill his wife. That threat led police to obtain a warrant for his arrest, which led to Tuesday’s standoff.
