SAN ANTONIO – A standoff on the city’s South Side has come to an end, resulting in the arrests of a 44-year-old man and two of his family members, according to San Antonio police.
The man, whose identity is still being withheld by authorities, was booked on two warrants for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and two of his family members were arrested for repeatedly crossing into the cordoned-off scene and “interfering with his arrest.”
One of those family members also kicked out a patrol window and will be charged with criminal mischief, police said.
The standoff happened shortly after a similar incident transpired hours earlier on Saturday.
The man involved has been “the subject of multiple disturbances this week,” according to police.
One of the most recent disturbances involving the man happened Saturday morning when he threatened on social media to burn his house down in the 100 block of South Park Boulevard, according to officials.
“This has been an ongoing situation spanning several days,” said SAPD spokeswoman Mariah Medina.
The standoff Saturday morning was resolved peacefully in about 20 minutes, according to police. However, as of Saturday afternoon, another standoff ensued between the same man and authorities.
The standoff happened over the course of several hours, and officials said they were able to safely evacuate the man’s family from their home. The man was holed up inside of the home, alone, during the standoff, police said.
It’s unknown if he was armed or if he had any access to weapons. No injuries were reported.
The man has an extensive criminal history with law enforcement and has a history of violent offenses, according to SAPD.
