PSP Meadville
A 46 year old Venus Man was arrested in Meadville after a short standoff on the roof of a house late Saturday night. The unnamed man was the suspect in a hit and run that had taken place shortly before 1:30AM at the intersection between Route 19 and Highway 322. He was cornered by State Troopers and Meadville City Police in the attic of a house just off of water Street where he made his way up to the roof by breaking through a ventilation system. The suspect refused to leave the roof until he was talked down by officers on scene and was eventually retrieved with assistance from the Meadville Fire Department.
