VISTA —File source
A man accused of domestic violence prompted an hourslong standoff with deputies on a SWAT team at a home in Vista on Wednesday, an official said.
The incident was reported about 8:20 a.m. on Apollo Drive near East Indian Rock Road. The 50-year-old man was accused of assault, sheriff’s Lt. David Collins said.
He said the victim got out safely and was not taken to a hospital.
Deputies instructed the man to walk out and surrender, but he did not respond. A SWAT team was later called in.
Collins said the man has a felony arrest warrant, but the lieutenant declined to elaborate on that case. The standoff was ongoing as of 1:40 p.m.
