FORT WAYNE, Ind (21ALIVE) -- Fort Wayne Police say the man who barricaded himself inside a home is finally out. No one was injured.

The suspect is in police custody and is charged with domestic battery.

Around 10 p.m. Saturday, Fort Wayne Police say they made contact with the man inside a home on the 1600 block of Hinton Drive, and convinced him to come out.

The man walked out and sat down, even though he was supposed to lie down on the ground. Since he didn't follow instructions, police say they were forced to use a "less lethal" tactic in order to cuff him.

Police say the man did not have a weapon on him, however they had not searched the house at that point.

Police had been on the scene since 4:40 Saturday afternoon.

Officers have brought in the Emergency Service Team and the Crisis Intervention Team.

Reports indicate this all began over a domestic dispute earlier Saturday. Police responded to a 911 hangup, but were unable to arrest the suspect at that time.

Police say just before 5 p.m. the suspect returned to the home and started an argument resulting in police being called again. When they arrived someone outside the home told them the suspect was still inside.
