Authorities officially charged a Fort Bragg soldier in connection with a standoff that happened last week. Specialist Jason Johnson kept Fayetteville police at bay for hours during a standoff at Chason Ridge Apartments.

Police say it started as a domestic dispute. The 24-year-old dental specialist surrendered peacefully after talking with his mother.

He is charged with five counts of assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm, one count of discharging a weapon into occupied property and one count of second-degree burglary.
