Family returns from holiday trip, finds man staying in home

An Atlanta-area family says they returned home from holiday travel to find someone else living in their house

MARIETTA, Ga. -- An Atlanta-area family says they returned home from holiday travel to find someone else living in their house.

WSB-TV quotes Janice Henson as saying the key wouldn't turn when they returned Wednesday. A man who came to the door told her to leave and said it was his home now. She called police.

Cobb County police say 26-year-old Nathaniel Jacob Nuckols threatened to shoot at officers and was arrested after a five-hour standoff. A SWAT team eventually rammed the front door down. They sent a robot to locate him, but found no weapon.

Jail records say Nuckols faces charges including burglary and terroristic threats. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.
