Rock Hill police said Paul Anthony Perry, 60, is facing felony charges of resisting arrest and filing a false police report after a four-hour standoff involving two women Friday on King Drive.
Perry was released by Saturday afternoon for medical reasons on a personal recognizance bond, according to Rock Hill City Jail.
Capt. Brent Allmon of the Rock Hill Police Department said Saturday an investigation showed the two women involved were not actually hostages, although Perry told officers they were — warranting the felony charge of filing a false police report.
Allmon said Friday the incident happened because Perry threatened constables who were serving him with an eviction notice.
Never miss a local story.
The incident began just before noon and ended when he surrendered to police at about 3:20 p.m. Friday. Allmon said Perry was taken for medical care from an injury from days before.
During negotiations, SWAT team members surrounded the house and sent in a bomb squad robot.
During this standoff in the College Downs neighborhood, Rock Hill police were facing a second standoff on Ellis Street.
A woman barricaded herself in her home, but was taken into custody around 9:30 p.m. Friday, police said. Police and York County were responding to a call that the woman had suicidal thoughts.
No one was hurt in either incident, police said.
