Officers surrounded the house and attempted to make contact with the subject. Once contact was made conversation began and after some time the subject was convinced to come out peaceably. The subject was taken into custody without incident. Once the investigation was completed the subject was charged with Criminal Damage to Property and Disorderly Conduct.
