Written by

A 55-year-old Akron man was arrested in Springfield Township on Sunday, but he didn’t come easy. 

Springfield police tell the Akron Beacon Journal that the suspect, Vincent Mann, has a history of violating protection orders and that this was the 11th time in the past 12 months they’ve been called to deal with him. 

On Sunday authorities say a woman called them saying that Mann, who is her ex-boyfriend, came to her house on Salmon Drive, violating a protection order. He then proceeded to barricade himself inside her home. 

After Mann fired off one shot at the police, authorities brought in a SWAT team, used tear gas, and eventually made their way inside the home to arrest him.

Mann was taken to the hospital for a mental health evaluation and is facing several charges including inducing panic and improper discharge of a firearm.
