Salt Lake Barricade Suspect Charged

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A man who caused a traffic tie-up after he barricaded himself inside a Salt Lake home is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.

Police shut down a stretch of Salt Lake Boulevard Tuesday morning, when the suspect refused to come out, indicated he had a weapon, and threatened to burn the house down. Twenty-seven-year-old Jerome Kealoha surrendered shortly after the SWAT team arrived.

He's now charged with domestic abuse, terroristic threatening, burglary, robbery and criminal property damage.
