From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A SWAT team helped resolve a Thursday standoff in Huntingburg.
The arrest of Jesse W. Hall, 36, 202 E. 22nd St., followed a report that a domestic battery situation involving a firearm had occurred at Hall’s residence Wednesday night. Huntingburg Police Department detectives launched an investigation at 10:45 a.m. Thursday.
After information was learned that Hall was likely armed, detectives notified officers working patrol and they established a perimeter around the residence.
Police asked Hall to turn himself in, but authorities said he refused.
Huntingburg police said contact was made with Hall several times in attempts to get him to come out of the residence. Eventually, Huntingburg police contacted Indiana State Police to request assistance from the state agency’s SWAT team.
While awaiting SWAT officers, Huntingburg police, Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputies and troopers from the Jasper Post closed streets in the area to restrict traffic flow for safety reasons.
SWAT personnel arrived at 6:15 p.m. and took over the operation.
Hall eventually surrendered peacefully at approximately 8:30 p.m.
Huntingburg police said Hall is preliminarily charged with domestic battery in the presence of a child, strangulation, pointing a firearm, criminal recklessness and criminal confinement.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services also assisted.
Hall was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:50 a.m. today.
