Standoff ends when man suffers seizure

BRUNSWICK — A domestic dispute Friday afternoon escalated into a nearly two-hour-long police standoff that ended when a man suffered a seizure.

Officers responding to a report of a domestic dispute at 3327 Valley Forge Drive about 2:45 p.m. found a woman outside the house and a man who “had barricaded himself inside,” according to a Brunswick police news release.

Officers negotiated with the man, identified as Luke Pfeiler, 22, who suffered a seizure about 4:30 p.m.

He was taken to Southwest General Hospital in Middleburg Heights.

Pfeiler was charged with domestic violence. Police said the investigation is continuing.
