A police SWAT unit was dispatched to a Darien residence Saturday afternoon after a man barricaded himself inside.
Sgt. Jeremiah Marron said the emergency at 55 Brookside Drive ended without incident when a negotiator with the SWAT team was able to talk to the man and convince him to leave peacefully.
At one point during the drama, which began round 4 p.m., the man climbed onto the roof of the dwelling.
Details about whether the man was armed, or if anyone else was home at the time of the incident were not released by police as of Saturday evening.
The man was taken into custody, but it was not immediately known whether charges would be filed, Marron said.
