        GOLF MANOR — An auxiliary North College Hill police officer is facing charges and has been placed on administrative leave from the volunteer police job after officers say he barricaded himself in a Golf Manor apartment and held them at bay for nearly three hours Friday morning.

        Randy Wilson, 32, is charged with inducing panic, domestic violence and discharging a firearm, all misdemeanors.

        There were no injuries.

        Mr. Wilson has been an auxiliary officer for North College Hill since March 2000. The three North College Hill auxiliary officers work 16 hours per month. They always work with a paid officer and help with such things as crowd control, North College Hill Police Chief Paul Toth said.

        Auxiliaries have full police powers and carry a weapon.

        “At this point his police powers are suspended,” Chief Toth said.

        Police were called to an apartment in the 6100 block of Ridge Acres Drive about 6:20 a.m.

        Mr. Wilson's wife and brother got out, but two children under age 8 were sleeping in the apartment.

        Hamilton County Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team members negotiated with Mr. Wilson, who was barricaded in a bathroom, police said. He surrendered around 9 a.m.
