Redding police arrested a man early Sunday morning, following a two hour standoff outside a mobile home.

Officers were called the Starlight Mobile Estates around 3:40 a.m. and when they arrived they found 34-year-old Brian James Willis destroying the inside of his father’s home.

Police attempted to negotiate with Willis, who threatened officers with pieces of broken glass, but were unable to get him to cooperate.

After two hours, police sent a K-9 inside and Willis was taken into custody.

Willis was sent to a local hospital for treatment and upon release he faces charges of criminal threats, stalking, felony resisting of a peace officer, and felony vandalism.
