Police arrest man following domestic disturbance, standoff with SWAT
COLUMBIA - Police arrested a man Thursday afternoon following a domestic incident and standoff involving a SWAT team.
Officers responded to the incident at around 12:30 p.m. on Godas Circle and found a woman outside the home with injuries. She was taken to a hospital for treatment while police tried to get the suspect, identified as Jaque Cox, inside to cooperate.
When he didn't follow orders, police called in a SWAT team and the Crisis Negotiation Team. They eventually breached a door, but Cox surrendered before police went into the home.
Cox, 29, was booked into jail for domestic assault and two out-of-county warrants.
