HOLMDEL – A 46-year-old township man faced a handful of criminal charges after a domestic dispute turned into an eight-hour gun battle with police that ended peacefully.

Brian Piscopo, of Holmdel, was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, criminal restraint, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and endangering the welfare of a child, according to prosecutors of Monmouth County, Raymond Santiago.

The menacing charge stemmed from a child who was present in the home during the original domestic dispute — the child was not present or in any danger during the struggle, Santiago said.

On Saturday just before 7 p.m., a Holmdel resident arrived at the township police station to report a domestic dispute to Pine Valley Court.

Officers responded to the home and about an hour later, the Monmouth County Emergency Response Team was called in along with Monmouth County Rapid Deployment Force and the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office.

After lengthy negotiations, Piscopo was taken into custody shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday — and was immediately taken to a local medical facility for evaluation, Santiago said.

During the shutdown, local roads were closed and several neighboring houses were evacuated by the police as a precaution.

Holmdel Police shared an update on the department’s Facebook page on Sunday, which said in part “The earlier police activity in Beau Ridge has been concluded. One arrest has been made and there is no threat to the community. The incident, which took place in a residence, was resolved peacefully.”
