 A local man is now in police custody following a brief standoff with authorities Thursday morning in east Shreveport.


Aaron Chrisman, 27, was arrested this morning, and subsequently transported to University Health where he was treated for a dog bite.  


Shortly after 8 this morning, members of the Shreveport Police Department's Warrants Unit arrived at a home located in the 200 block of East Elmwood Street to execute a felony arrest warrant on Chrisman, a wanted fugitive. 


Chrisman, was wanted in reference to an outstanding warrant charging him with Convicted Felon in Possession of a Firearm.  


Upon arrival at the home, warrant officers were granted permission by the homeowner to enter the residence.  On their entry, authorities spotted Chrisman, who eluded officers by running into the home's bathroom. 


The suspect ignored officers orders to exit the bathroom, subsequently barricading himself inside.  Not certain if Chrisman had access to weapons, assistance was requested  from members of the department's Special Response Team along with a police K-9.  


Shortly after the arrival of additional resources, entry was made into the home's bathroom where Chrisman was taken into custody. 


Chrisman was treated at the scene by the Shreveport Fire Department for injuries resulting from the K-9 dog bite, before he was transported to the hospital. 


Upon his hospital release, Chrisman will be booked into the Shreveport City Jail.  Chrisman faces additional charges for resisting arrest.
