Prosecutors: Charges Unlikely After Hazlet Standoff
Authorities say no charges will likely be filed against a man who barricaded himself inside a central New Jersey home for several hours.
Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Charles Webster tells the Asbury Park Press that there were no injuries and no shots were fired during Sunday night’s standoff in Hazlet.
But neighboring homes were evacuated as a safety precaution.
The man has not been identified. He was taken to a hospital and was being evaluated Monday, but further details were not disclosed.
