BALTIMORE COUNTY, md. — A man is facing multiple charges after being accused of physically assaulting his daughter and threatening a tow truck driver at gunpoint after their vehicles got stuck in the family's driveway.

On Saturday, 56-year-old Andrew Gardner became irate after his daughter’s car became stuck in the family’s driveway along with the tow truck she had called to help.

During the dispute, Gardner is accused of physically assaulting his 34-year-old daughter and threatening the driver of the tow truck at gunpoint.

Gardner eventually barricaded himself inside the family’s home several hours.

Negotiators with the Baltimore County Police Department kept in contact with Gardner and were instrumental in bringing about a peaceful resolution.

Gardner is held on a no-bail status pending a bail review hearing.

He is currently being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center where he faces assault and firearm charges.
