Tacoma police arrested a domestic violence suspect early today after a three-hour standoff at his South Tacoma home.

The man was suspected of attacking his mother hours earlier. He was booked into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault-domestic violence, police reported.

Officers were called to the 3400 block of Pacific Avenue about 10:30 p.m. Monday. They found a 70-year-old woman who had a broken jaw.

Officers learned the woman’s son had assaulted her and tried to strangle her, police said. The son then stole the woman’s car and drove off.

Officers found the man at his home in the 5200 block of South Birmingham Street. The man refused to come out.

The SWAT team responded and started to negotiate with the man.

The man surrendered just after 3 a.m., police reported.

    Is our town possessed? No. It is just filled with plenty of evil politicians who care nothing for the most vulnerable, just their SUVs. Well, eventually after reading all these stories and doing crime stat checks, no one will move here.

    No sane business owner would move here or stay here. Flee, flee, take your tax money with you and just flee!

    Bleed the evil dry of their evil money. It is our only hope.
