Man charged after 8-hour standoff with O’Fallon police

St. Louis, Mo ( KTRS ) A man who surrendered after engaging police in an eight-hour standoff in O’Fallon, Missouri, has been charged with three felonies.

45 yr old William Lee Pennington is being charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer, assaulting a police animal and resisting arrest.

Pennington barricaded himself inside of a home when police responded to a domestic dispute call.

Authorities say a police dog was sent in to try and apprehend him. Pennington then struggled with the dog before trapping it in the basement. When authorities heard what they thought was a muffled gunshot, a negotiator persuaded Pennington to release the dog.

The dog was taken to a clinic for treatment.

Pennington eventually surrendered after a second round of tear gas was fired into the home.
