Man who staged East Side standoff arrested, but police don't identify him

A 35-year-old Buffalo man was arrested for falsely reporting an incident after his threat to blow up his house led to a SWAT standoff Wednesday night.

Although police arrested the man, they did not identify him. He was transported to Erie County Medical Center to be evaluated after his surrender. He had staged a multi-hour standoff with police, reportedly threatening to blow up oxygen or propane tanks inside an apartment at 26 Thomas Street, in the East Side.
