Tattooed-Man Attacks Officers With Statue, Barricades Self in New Jersey Home: Police

A man with face tattoos of bullet holes threw objects at police officers during a multi-hour barricade situation inside a South Jersey home, according to Medford Township police.

Officers arrived at a home along Jackson Road shortly after 11:30 p.m. Sunday to investigate a man rampaging through the house while acting disorderly, according to investigators.

Officers got several family members out of the home as Jeffrey Douglas, 35, barricaded himself in the basement and refused to exit, police said. As officers attempted to talk to him, investigators said that Douglas burst out of the room and began throwing objects at officers.

He even tried to strike officers with a ceramic statue, said police.

Douglas -- who has various facial tattoos including bullet holes, icicle tears and the word “thug” -- then ran up to the second floor and refused to come down, said investigators.

SWAT teams, assisting with the barricade situation, eventually found Douglas sleeping in a second-floor bedroom around 6:30 a.m. Monday.

Police arrested Douglas on charges including aggravated assault on police, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.
