A 30-year-old Janesville man is in custody after police spent close to six hours last night trying to convince him to come out of the house.
Police say the incident began about 8:30 at a home in the 35-hundred block of Curry Lane.
Police were concerned about threats of violence the suspect had made, and weapons reported in the home. Family members escaped. The SWAT team eventually entered the home and took the suspect into custody a little after 2:00 this morning.
Jason Peebles faces charges of disorderly conduct and domestic violence.
