Gregg County man was arrested early Monday morning after holding officers at bay most of the night. Taken into custody was Jesus Salaiz, 21, of North Hidden Forest. Salaiz was said to have barricaded himself inside the residence.

Officers circled the house and finally were able to talk Salaiz into surrendering. They are said to have found a couple of semi-automatic weapons near the front door.

During the standoff, an officer fired one round when it appeared that Salaiz was taking aim at a Gregg County deputy. The suspect was not hit.
He has been charged with aggravated assault against a public servant and disorderly conduct (vulgar language).

He was also charged with resisting arrest after struggling with officers booking him into the Gregg County Jail.
