GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Green Bay Police Department reopened a residential street shortly before 2 P.M. -- about three hours after the SWAT team responded to a domestic disturbance Friday morning.

Police say a family was worried about a man in the house on the 800-block of S. Baird St. who has a history of mental problems. He refused to talk with police, so they called in SWAT to try to convince him to come out.

The man was alone in the house. Police said they aren’t worried about any weapons or about anyone else being in danger, and they were going to wait him out.

Baird St. was closed between Lawe and Porlier streets during the standoff. Motorists are advised to use Irwin Avenue instead.
