UNION BEACH, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say no charges will be filed against a man who barricaded himself inside a central New Jersey home.

The standoff at the Union Beach home started around 9:30 p.m. Friday and lasted for nearly three hours. Some nearby homes in the Monmouth County community were briefly evacuated as a precaution, but no injuries were reported.

The man, who apparently was alone in the home, was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation. His name has not been released.

Authorities have not said what sparked the standoff.
