An area man is taken into custody following a domestic dispute that turned into a stand-off Tuesday morning in Coshocton County.

The Sheriff’s Office says that 37-year-old Jason Payton’s wife came to the station around 8 a.m. to report a domestic dispute at 345 South 5th Street.

Deputies arrived at the residence and tried to contact Payton, who refused to come out. The Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team was called in and a team of two negotiators made several attempts to speak with him. On a final attempt, they were able to throw a phone into the home, speak with Payton, and get him to come out.

He was cuffed before being taken to Coshocton County Memorial Hospital for minor injuries from a self-inflicted wound.
