A report alleging domestic violence resulted in a late-night standoff and arrest of a DeRidder man, according to a release from the DeRidder Police Department.
Late Thursday night, DPD responded to a home in the Twin Lakes subdivision in DeRidder after receiving a call related to alleged domestic violence, the release states.
According to police, James Dugas, 54, re-entered his home with a firearm and barricaded himself in the home.
"It was also determined that Dugas had an active protective order filed against him," the release states. "The victim was transported to Beauregard Memorial Hospital for treatment."
Police established a perimeter around the home, and were unable to make contact with Dugas by telephone, according to DPD.
"Dugas could be seen brandishing a shotgun and threatening officers," the release claims.
Police said several attempts were made via a loudspeaker to command Dugas to surrender, but those attempts were unsuccessful. At that point, DPD deployed non-lethal gas rounds into the home, and at 1:22 a.m. Friday morning, Dugas surrendered without further incident, the release states.
Dugas suffered no injuries, but two police officers were treated for minor cuts due to glass breakage, according to DPD. Dugas was also treated for exposure to non-lethal gas.
Louisiana State Police and the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office assisted DPD.
Dugas was arrested and booked into the Beauregard Jail on charges of domestic abuse battery, violation of protective orders, aggravated assault upon a peace officer with a firearm and illegal carrying of a weapon.
