San Angelo Man Arrested for Family Violence After Standoff With Police
On Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 11:16 pm, San Angelo Police responded to the 200 block of E 12th Street for a domestic disturbance. It was reported Juan Fernandez had assaulted his 21 year old girlfriend, had a gun, and was making threats to harm himself.
When officers arrived, contact was made with witnesses who stated Fernandez had a gun. Fernandez and his girlfriend were still inside. Due to Fernandez having a gun, making threats to harm himself, and the victim still being inside and possibly being in danger, a perimeter was established around the house and the SWAT and Crisis Negotiation Teams responded to the scene.
Members of the Crisis Negotiation Team were able to make contact with Fernandez by phone and he eventually agreed to go outside. At 1:53 am, Fernandez exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.
After further investigation, Fernandez was transported to the Tom Green County Jail where he was charged with Assault Family Violence causing Bodily Injury. A gun has not been located at this time. An airsoft pistol that had the appearance of a real gun was located in the residence.
The victim had minor injuries and was not treated at the scene.
