It all started Thursday morning when deputies tried to do a welfare check at the 52 year-old man, Bart Swancoat’s home.
When deputies approached the house, Swancoat walked out with a gun then barricaded himself inside the house. Deputies say they closed Hampton Road during the stand-off.
“We blocked off the road for the safety of the residents that live in the area or were traveling on the road. Because firearms were involved, we wanted to make sure that we didn’t have any community members coming in up and down this section of the road,” said Sgt. Steve French, Lane County Sheriff’s Office.
Swancoat was transported to the Lane County Jail. He’s charged with menacing, disorderly conduct, and pointing a firearm at another.
