DAYTON — A Dayton man involved in a 9½-hour SWAT standoff was indicted today on a felony charge stemming from last month’s incident.
Devin L. Washington, 26, now faces a felony charge of obstructing official business, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report.
He remains in the Montgomery County Jail, where he’s been since his Aug. 21 arrest that brought the standoff to a close at 41 Pointview Ave. in Dayton.
The U.S. Marshals Service Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team Task Force members arrived at the home at 7:30 a.m. to make an arrest on a felony warrant when the man spotted officers, ran upstairs and barricaded himself in a room, refusing to come out, Dayton police Maj. Brian Johns said at the time.
A SWAT team was called in, and they eventually found Washington hiding inside an attic and at 5 p.m. took him into custody.
Washington is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday, according to court records.
