Ozark Police Standoff Ends Peacefully

A four hour stand-off in Ozark ended peacefully on Saturday.

Chris Ford walked out of his house on Norhtwood Drive and surrendered to Authorites Saturday afternoon.

Ford had been arrested earlier that day as a result of the incident, made bond, and returned to his residence.

Police then received a call from a relative saying that Ford had a weapon and refused to let his wife leave the house.

When police arrived the wife was outside and indicated ford had shoved her.

Ford surrendered to police around 5:30 p.m.

He was then arrested on a second domestic violence charge.
