According to a news release, officers were called to the 500 block of East Hall at roughly 3:20 p.m. to investigate "a disturbance in a household involving family violence.
"On their arrival, the two officers were attempting to investigate when they were sprayed with bear spray by a male subject in his 20s. The subject then retreated into the residence and barricaded himself inside."
