Vancouver police arrested a man in the Carter Park neighborhood after bringing the regional SWAT team and an armored vehicle to a domestic disturbance involving weapons.

At 1:14 p.m. police responded to 3244 Olive St. where the husband allegedly had a 210 shotgun and a rifle with scope on it, according to emergency radio traffic monitored by The Columbian. Cmdr. Dave King said police brought a Bearcat, armored vehicle, the SWAT team and negotiators based on the situation.

The man came out of the house without issue.

“We just brought enough stuff that we might need and we didn’t need it,” King said.

The man was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence assault and domestic violence felony harassment.

According to Clark County property records, the home is owned by Sean and Chanel Giffiths.

Domestic violence detectives are investigating this incident.
