    Jonathan Bill, 49, was arrested after an hours-long standoff with police in Waterford on Saturday.

    A man accused of holding police at bay during a weekend standoff has been arrested.

    According to police, Jonathan Bill, 49, barricaded himself inside a trailer at the Woodland Mobile Home Park in Waterford on Saturday.

    Police said Bill was armed and wanted to harm himself and others.

    The incident started just after 3 p.m., near Boston Post Road. Police evacuated residents inside the trailer park and officers blocked off Woodland Grove Road for hours.

    Neighbors said they heard yelling coming from the mobile home.

    After several hours, a SWAT team entered the mobile home, and Bill surrendered to police without incident.  He was taken to a hospital for an evaluation.

    Police executed a search warrant on Bill's residence and siezed several firearms, according to authorities.

    Bill was charged with first-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace and interfering with police.  He was held on $100,000 bond and is scheduled to be in court on Tuesday.
