FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - An hours-long SWAT standoff came to a peaceful end in a Fort Lauderdale neighborhood.

Fort Lauderdale Police units responded to a domestic dispute at a home along Southwest 27th Terrace, Monday morning.

Investigators said the subject, wanted for domestic battery, surrendered about two hours later after a SWAT team released tear gas into the home.

He has since been identified as 36-year-old Tom Joseph.

In addition to the battery charge, Joseph faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
