BATON ROUGE - A domestic dispute in Baton Rouge ended today with police raiding a house and taking one person into custody.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said officers arrested one man for assault after the BRPD Special Response Team pulled him out of the home.

McKneely said a woman there told police the man chased her around with a piece of lumber and threatened her this morning. When police arrived McKneely said the man refused to leave the house, and forced officers to take all necessary precautions.

After negotiators couldn't get him to leave the home, the SRT rushed the house and took him into custody.

McKneely said the suspect has a long history of domestic violence.
