Woman hospitalized after standoff in Vt.

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Police in South Burlington say a street was shut down after a standoff with a woman who gained entry to a home she was not supposed to be in.

WCAX-TV reports police say the woman was acting erratically when they arrived at the residence on Sunday night. They say she had apparently gotten into a fight with her mother, who wasn’t home when police were called to the scene. Chief Trevor Whipple says officers smelled gasoline coming from the home.

Whipple says officers were able to convince the woman to exit the home.
