TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A man is in custody after a standoff situation in a Tippecanoe County neighborhood Wednesday night.

Investigators with the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office said it started as a domestic dispute.

A woman told police her boyfriend came to her home in the 4500 block of Chisholm Trail, begging her to let him inside. That's about a mile west of Wea Ridge Middle School. After the woman let him in, he started hitting her with a gun.

He then started firing blank rounds at her. The woman was able to escape to a neighbor's and call 911.

The man then barricaded himself in the house. Deputies set up a perimeter and a SWAT team was called to the scene. Once authorities made their way into the home, they were able to take the man into custody.

Police arrested 21-year-old Ryan Rogers. He was booked Thursday morning in the Tippecanoe County Jail.

Rogers was taken to a hospital to be evaluated. Investigators believe drugs and alcohol were factors in the incident.

He faces preliminary charges of battery by means of a deadly weapon, criminal confinement while armed, and intimidation with use of a deadly weapon. The sheriff's office said more charges could be added once investigators talk to more witnesses.
