SWAT ends Janesville stand-off



A 39-year-old Janesville man is facing charges including Disorderly Conduct While Armed/Domestic Related after the SWAT team was called to a home on South Martin Road Sunday night.  Janesville Police Sergeant Dean Sukus says officers responded a little before 8:30 p.m. to a report of an armed subject making suicidal comments.  Sukas says the other occupants of the residence had already fled the home.  Sukus says officers made phone contact with Daniel Eldridge, but after two hours called in the SWAT team.  Police say after the suspect made it clear he was not coming out, SWAT used chemical munitions to take him into custody without injury.
