A Springfield Township man who barricaded himself in his home during a standoff with authorities that lasted three hours was indicted Tuesday by a Lucas County grand jury.
Michael Swiergosz, 46, of 111 Hidden Meadow Drive, was charged with two counts of felonious assault, each with firearm specifications. The grand jury did not indict him on a charge of inducing panic.
Authorities said the March 10 incident was sparked by financial concerns. Mr. Swiergosz's home was in foreclosure and had been set for sheriff's sale.
Sheriff's deputies went to the home, just south of Hill Avenue and east of North Centennial Road, on a call of domestic violence and shots fired. Authorities said Mr. Swiergosz fired two shots - one in the ground and one in the air - before deputies arrived .
Mr. Swiergosz eventually surrendered to authorities. He was arraigned March 19 in Sylvania Municipal Court and is free on bond.
