A Columbus man was arrested last night after a short standoff with the police SWAT team.

The incident started at about 8:25 p.m. when Columbus officers were called to the 1900 block of Vinewood Drive after a man with a gun allegedly threatened another person in the home. That started a standoff with the suspect, and the SWAT team and crisis negotiators were called in.

Police talked 36-year-old Austin J. Corrazzin into surrendering shortly afterwards, according to police reports. He was arrested on preliminary charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon, criminal confinement and interference with the reporting of a crime.
