A man and woman were charged today after they refused to come out of Tonia Alexander’s 217 N. Elm St. residence during a standoff that ended around 4 a.m.





Paul Lindsay, 30, of 117 W. Buckingham Ave., has been lodged in the Logan County Jail on a parole violation, while Jacqueline Jordan, 30, of 612 Florence Ave., was charged with obstructing justice.

Both were referred to prosecutors for consideration of more charges, officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department report.

Police were called to the Alexander residence around 11:35 p.m. Thursday. Ms. Alexander was at work.

Mr. Lindsay was spotted inside locking the doors and he refused to allow officers in.

As she exited the front door, SRT members tried to enter the residence to apprehend Mr. Lindsay.

Ms. Jordan allegedly got in their way and grabbed onto a SRT member.
