LOGAN — A Logan man was arrested this week after he made threats toward himself while potentially being intoxicated with a handgun.

Late Monday, the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a female, who resides on Hocking Drive in Green Township. She stated her boyfriend was armed with a handgun, extremely intoxicated and was making suicidal threats.

The female told the dispatcher that her boyfriend took the gun, walked outside and fired one round before coming back inside where he continued to make additional threats.

Deputies arrived on scene and surrounded the residence and began ordering the occupants to come out of the residence. The female caller was able to exit safely, but stated her boyfriend was barricading himself in the bathroom.

The Logan-Hocking Special Response Team was called to the scene to assist with the situation. After the male ignored verbal commands for more than half an hour, the special response team personnel deployed tear gas into the residence.

Additional commands were given, but the male did not respond. The response team then entered the residence when the male finally responded and said that he would surrender. He walked down the stairs where he was taken into custody without incident.

Travis Singleton, 29, of Logan, was arrested and charged with having weapons under disability, a third-degree felony. When he was taken into custody, a loaded 9mm handgun was found on his person.

Felonies of the third degree are punishable by nine to 36 months in prison, $10,000 fine, and three years of post release control.

Singleton was transported to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail and went through a video arraignment with the Hocking County Municipal Court on Wednesday.

He was given a $50,000 cash or surety bond. The stipulations of the bond include he have no contact with his girlfriend and possess no firearms, no drugs, alcohol or paraphernalia.
