A Crawford County man accused of beating his brother in hospice was arrested after a short standoff with Cedarville Police.

James Patillo was booked into the Crawford County Detention Center on felony 2nd Degree Domestic Battery, Public Intoxication and Resisting Arrest Tuesday (Dec. 10).

Cedarville Police Chief Blayne Irvin said Patillo got into a fight with his brother because his brother wouldn’t get out of his chair.

Patillo’s brother suffered torn ligaments in his finger and bruising to his ribs after Irvin says Patillo pushed the man out of the chair.

Irvin said officers located Patillo in the back yard of a residence on Neal Rd. The suspect then barricaded himself inside for about an hour.

Patillo came out of the home about 3 p.m. but resisted arrest, according to Irvin. Officers used a taser to take him into custody. Patillo was not armed at the time.

His brother is currently staying with neighbors, according to Irvin.
