A Clarksville man was arrested Sunday morning on assault charges after an hours-long standoff with police.
A news release from Clarksville Police says 33-year old Jeremy Joe Brundige is accused of choking his 43-year old girlfriend at a Melrose Drive resident. He also allegedly banged her head against the wall and put a gun to her head.
The victim was eventually able to escape Brundige and called police. When officers arrived, Brudige had already fled the scene to his Southwood Ct. residence and a standoff ensued and lasted until 8am when a crisis negotiating team convinced him to surrender.
Brudige was arrested without incident and charged with aggravated domestic assault.
