(Gratis, OH)--There was a standoff in Preble County Monday.  A SWAT Team and hostage negotiators were sent to a home on Gratis-Jacksonburg Road near Gratis after a woman was able to phone police and tell them that she and a child were being held against their will by a man identified as 38-year-old Brian Miller.  The two victims escaped, but Miller holed himself up inside the home for eight hours and was armed with a rifle.  Chemical agents were deployed and Miller climbed out of an attic vent.  Charges include abduction and felonious assault.
