A Plainfield man barricaded himself in his home and held police at bay for more than an hour before surrendering Tuesday afternoon.
The man was taken to Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora after he emerged from his house in Plainfield's Whispering Woods subdivision. He will not face criminal charges, police said.
Officers were sent to the man's house about 12:40 p.m. to check out a domestic disturbance.
"Upon arrival, officers made contact with the adult male resident who became extremely despondent, uncooperative and threatening," according to a statement released by the Plainfield Police Department.
"The officers were also able to make contact with and remove the adult female resident without incident," the statement said. "Officers immediately set up a secure perimeter surrounding the area based on the threatening nature of the comments made by the male as well as his failure to cooperate."
Officers fromJoliet, Shorewood and Romeoville assisted in surrounding the house.
The man left the house shortly before 2 p.m. and surrendered, police said.
"After his surrender, a Plainfield police entry team conducted a protective sweep of the residence securing the scene and ensuring there were no further occupants," police said.
