MISSOURI CITY, Texas -

A man was arrested Wednesday after punching two officers in the face and holding a SWAT team at bay for hours, Missouri City police said.

Officers were called to the Century Apartments in Sienna Plantation on Sienna Springs Boulevard around 9 p.m. Tuesday after a man called 911 to say his friend was thinking about doing something violent.

Missouri City police said the friend, Chad Chadwick, refused to come out of his third-floor apartment after a fight with his wife.

After several hours of failed negotiations, SWAT officers barged in and used a Taser gun to get Chadwick under control and handcuffed him at 1 a.m. Wednesday, officials said.

Before he was handcuffed, police said Chadwick punched two officers in the face. They will be OK.

Chadwick was charged with two counts of assault on a peace officer.
