Officers attempted to negotiate with the man who had “barricaded” himself inside the home while also seeking a warrant to enter the house.
After a few hours, police say they legally entered the house and arrested the man along with a woman who was inside.
The man was arrested on the strength of two warrants and was also charged with breach of a judicial release order.
