SPRING CITY, Pa. -

Authorities in Chester County had to shut down part of a neighborhood because of a standoff Monday night.

Officials say a man on Church Street in Spring City threatened his wife with a rifle.

Two SWAT teams were called in, and the neighborhood was evacuated during the incident.

Authorities managed to talk the man, later identified as Robert Fillman, out of the home after more than three hours.

He was taken into custody and will be arraigned Monday morning.
