Honolulu police say Mark Char, 55, was charged with firearms violations and terroristic threatening after barricading himself inside an Ewa home last Wednesday night.

The incident began around 8 p.m. when an officer went to Halolani Street to investigate a disturbance call.

Investigators say Char was armed and refused arrested.

Char surrendered peacefully at around 5:30 a.m. Thursday.  No one was injured.

Char was charged with failure to have a place to keep a pistol or revolver and second-degree terroristic threatening.

He was released after posting a $25,000 bond.  He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning in District Court.
