Man arrested after police standoff
–On Thursday, deputies from the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a man who had threatened his neighbor in the 300 block of Manzanita Drive in Los Osos. When deputies arrived on scene, the man retreated inside his home.
A prolonged standoff ensued and the man would not exit the home. Negotiators were brought in and were in constant contact with the man. The suspect began making suicidal statements. Deputies and negotiators kept trying to get the man to come out of the home but he refused.
At approximately 2:00 p.m., deputies entered the home and the man barricaded himself in a back room of the house. Again, he refused to exit the home. At approximately 2:50 p.m., deputies made entry into the room and arrested the man without incident. The suspect is identified as 46-year-old Jaime A. Medina of Los Osos. He was arrested for making criminal threats and resisting arrest. A booking photo is not available at this time.
