A 7-year-old called 911 and stated that his dad was hitting his mom and then the phone hung up. As officers arrived a man confronted them a knife and screw driver, screaming, cursing them. After a brief standoff the suspect threw the knife at the officers, missing them. The suspect eventually dropped the screw driver, but as the officers tried to take him into custody he was combative. Jared Pederson, 31, was finally taken into custody and booked on several charges including domestic assault in the presence of a child. He incurred minor injury during the arrest, was checked and released by medics.
