UNION TOWNSHIP, Ohio – A  3 ½-hour SWAT standoff in Clermont County ended without incident Sunday, according to Union Township police.

At 3:40 p.m., the man was taken into custody by the Clermont County Special Response Team without further incident, according to a news release.

The man's name has not been released. He was transported to the Clermont County Jail and charged with aggravated menacing and inducing panic.
