Veteran involved in police standoff waives extradition
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The military veteran accused of holding police at bay in a standoff will go back to Kenton County to face charges. Michael Vaughn waived extradition Thursday.
Police say Vaughn held his children hostage, shot at police and tried to set his Latonia home on December 23. Eventually he released his children and surrendered. The ordeal lasted 26 hours. Police were called to his home, after receiving calls that Vaughn was making threatening phone calls and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Vaughn is charged with attempted murder of a police officer. After the standoff ended, he was taken to the hospital in Cincinnati for a gunshot wound, then to the Hamilton County jail. Kenton County has ten days to take him back to Kentucky.
