MOUNT PLESANT, S.C. (WCSC) - One person is in custody following a standoff at a Mount Pleasant home.

Officials with the Mount Pleasant Police Department said it started Thursday night, after police officers responded to a disturbance call involving a domestic situation and a vandalism on Wakendaw Road.

A report states Mount Pleasant Police S.W.A.T. and the Critical Incident Response Team responded to the scene after the person went inside and would not come out.

“There were two family members also inside the residence, and after approximately 3 hours the person came outside,” MPPD officials said.

The person is being charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and malicious injury to personal property greater than $2,000 dollars.

No one was injured during the incident, police officials said.

Wakendaw Road was closed as authorities worked the scene. Residents in the area reported a large presence of law enforcement in the area, and what appeared to be SWAT units around a home.
