When deputies arrived on scene they found a male armed with a baseball bat and hammer, who had chased the other occupants of the house into a bedroom where they barricaded themselves. The male also appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.
After all occupants inside the residence were secured safely, the individual was taken into custody. James Norris, 41 of Logan, was placed under arrest for Domestic Violence, a 4th Degree Felony and transported to the Regional Jail.
