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

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.
