FORT MYERS, Fla. — Fort Myers Police arrested 32-year-old Cody Casio after he barricaded himself into a home Wednesday afternoon.

It happened near Mohawk Avenue and Apache Street.

Investigators say Casio’s family members reached out to them because he was out of control and causing problems.

Officers say Casio threatened officers with a firearm.

It took members of the SWAT team to negotiate with Casio to turn himself in.

After two hours, he tossed the firearm out of the home and he was arrested.

Police are charging him with one count of aggravated assault with a firearm.
