Instead, he  hunkered down in his Clive Avenue house and  held cops at bay for  close to six hours.  his name is Mark Flemming. But several  news outlets, including Levittown Now state that he was no stranger to cops. Reports say that the man was just  recently released from prison. The official charges lodged against him include witness intimidation, stalking  and related offenses.  He was not allowed to have a firearm but cops said he had one anyway.

By noon on Friday, February 19,2016  it was Flemming  was not going to surrender and SWAT units were called in from surrounding townships.  As a small portion of Clive Avenue was locked down, cops  began the task of negotiating with the subject.  By 3:45 PM the suspect agreed to surrender. guns were pointed at him and he was secured.   Within minutes, he was hustled to the back seat of a  Police SUV with tinted windows and driven to Bensalem Police Headquarters. He will be arraigned later in the evening and then remanded to the Bucks County Correctional Facility.
