Police call S.W.A.T. after man refuses to let them in his house
(MY CENTRAL JERSEY) BOUND BROOK, NJ — A Winsor Street man was charged Tuesday with disorderly conduct following an incident Tuesday afternoon at his home that prompted a response from the Somerset County SWAT team.
The man, who has not been identified by police because the investigation is continuing, was taken to Somerset Medical Center in Somerville for psychological evaluation.
The incident began at about 3:29 p.m. when police received a call from a woman walking in the 500 block of Winsor Street that she heard screams coming from a house, police said.
A police officer responding to the home asked the resident if anything was wrong. The man said he was screaming because he was playing video games on his television, police said.
The man then became irrational, prompting additional police response, police said.
After the officers arrived, the man became increasingly irate, refused to let the officers into the house, threatened officers and then slammed the door, police said.
As the officers continued to communicate with the man through open windows, the SWAT team was called and staged in the nearby parking lot of Bound Brook High School.
The man decided to come out of the house without incident at 4:41 p.m
