Standoff near Dresden

Last night around 8 p.m. Chatham-Kent police went to a residence in the Dresden area to arrest a man.

The man was uncooperative and refused to surrender. Due to public safety issues, OPP Tactical Response Unit (TRU Team) was called to assist.

Irish School Road between McCreary Line and Kent Line remains closed as officers continue to try and negotiate with the man for a peaceful resolution.

Further information will be released as it becomes available.

Update: Man taken into custody without incident
