HATFIELD (CBS) — A local man was arrested Sunday after an armed standoff with officers, the state police said.
At about 5:20 p.m., troopers were dispatched to 8 Circle Drive to assist a Hatfield Police officer.

Two pistols and three rifles were taken from the home.
State police said Dostal faces the following charges: assault with a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest, intimidation of a witness, improper storage of a firearm and possession of a firearm while intoxicated.
