Man charged after hours-long standoff at downtown home
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A man is facing charges after officers were involved in an hours-long standoff at a downtown Charleston home Thursday night.
Jeffrey McCue, 34, is charged with first-degree burglary and kidnapping, according to jail records.
Police said officers tried to pull McCue over during a traffic stop at the intersection of East Bay Street and Morrison Drive. McCue fled on foot from the scene and ran into a home on Blake Street.
The residents were able to flee from the house while McCue stayed inside for over two hours, officials said.
A crisis management team was on scene working for a peaceful resolution, and McCue came out around midnight, Inspector Michael Gillooly said.
There was no threat to the public while officers responded to the scene.
