Man in court on standoff charges

A 38 year old man will be in court today on a number of charges after a standoff with police Friday in Fairview.

It was 17 hours before crisis negotiators could talk the man into giving up peacefully after he barricaded himself in a Tattoo Shop on Ashdale Avenue.  Police went there to pick the man up for allegedly breaching a court order. He pulled out a knife and the police backed off.
