SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A man is facing a slew of charges following a standoff Thursday afternoon at a Spartanburg County home.
The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said they responded to a home on Greenleaf Drive for a domestic violence call shortly after 1:45 p.m.
A woman told deputies she was assaulted by her boyfriend, later identified as Jorge Uriel Lara-Marquez, 32, of Greer, and that he was armed with a gun and may have been under the influence of methamphetamine. The woman and a small child were able to leave the home.
Deputies said Lara-Marquez then barricaded himself in the house.
The sheriff’s office SWAT team eventually went into the home and deployed a K9 shortly before 5 p.m.
Lara-Marquez was taken into custody and is being treated for a dog bite, deputies said.
He has been charged with first-degree domestic violence, trafficking cocaine, trafficking methamphetamine, and two counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
He is currently being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
