Bradley County authorities say a domestic fight between an adult man and two teenage boys came to a peaceful end after the man closed himself in a bedroom with a weapon.
Deputies responded to the 100 block of Thorne Circle, off U.S. Highway 64 at 9:40 p.m. Thursday, according to spokesman Bob Gault.
Officers entered the home where they found the man and boys fighting in a bedroom, Gault said in a news release.
“Shortly thereafter, the two were able to escape the residence with their mother and sister,” he said. “The suspect, who had a weapon in the bedroom, closed the door and refused to come out.”
Deputies talked to the man until he came out of the bedroom and surrendered around 3:30 a.m. today, Gault stated.
The adult was taken to Skyridge Medical Center for an evaluation. Charges of aggravated assault and three counts of reckless endangerment are pending, according to authorities.
