Hocking Co. man arrested after standoff with police
(WOUB) - A Hocking County man was arrested after a nearly three hour long stand-off with police Friday night.

Jason Cassells allegedly was making threats with a weapon toward another man.

Sheriff Lanny North says Cassell barricaded himself in a house along U.S. Rt. 33, forcing authorities to close the highway to traffic.

North says Cassell had warrants for his arrest in Hocking County for aggravated possession of drugs and resisting arrest, plus a separate warrant in Athens County.

He says Cassell will also face additional charges relating to the incident.
