Standoff in Springfield Township ends without incident

Beacon Journal staff report

SPRINGFIELD TWP.: A township man was arrested without incident early Friday following a standoff with police that lasted about 3½ hours.

Nicholas Gisentaner, 20, has been charged with inducing panic. He was being held in Summit County Jail.

According to a report from Springfield police, officers were called to a residence on Lyndon Drive about 9:30 p.m. Thursday for a domestic disturbance. Family members told them that Gisentaner was inside the home and that he might be armed with a handgun.

Gisentaner refused to come out of the home, police said, and made threats to shoot at officers.

At that point, Metro SWAT was dispatched. At approximately 1 a.m., SWAT officers entered the home and found Gisentaner in the basement.

No weapons were recovered.
