McGaheysville - Police arrested 37-year-old Benjamin Douglas Hill, Saturday night after fighting with his girlfriend at her house, and he returned home and began shooting a gun into the air.

"My daughter was coming down from Massanutten and she started to come down through here and she called and told us that the road was blocked and asked if something happened," said Roger Bauserman.

That's why a SWAT team was called in, and police blocked all nearby roads, which eventually caught the attention of nearby residents.

After negotiations with police, Hill finally surrendered around 7:30 Saturday night.

He is being charged with breaking and entering, assault and battery, reckless handing of a firearm, and felony charges of property damage.
a night to remember for neighbors who say they aren't use to something like this.

"We've had some skirmishes, every once in a while, little things don't amount to much, but usually everybody's pretty good," said Bauserman.
