Man accused of domestic violence causes SWAT standoff in Vista


A man charged with domestic violence refused to leave a home in Vista on Wednesday, prompting an hours-long confrontation with sheriff’s deputies that was still ongoing at 1:40 p.m., an official said.

The incident began around 8:20 a.m. on Apollo Drive near East Indian Rock Road. The 50-year-old has been charged with assault, Sheriff Lt. David Collins said.

Collins said the victim was released safely and did not require medical attention at a hospital.

Deputies ordered the man out of the house and surrender, but he did not respond. A SWAT team has been called.

Collins said the man had a felony warrant, but the lieutenant declined to elaborate on the case. Standoff was underway at 1:40 p.m.
