Fort Wayne police responded to a domestic disturbance which involved two brothers in a residence located at 1316 High Street at 5:30 a.m. this morning. Once on scene it was learned that the suspect, Jason Beam had somehow entered his brother’s home early in the morning and fell asleep on a Livingroom couch.

Fort Wayne police specialty teams, EST and CRT, were called to the scene to handle the incident. Once in place several attempts were made to get Beam to exit but all attempts failed resulting in the EST Team deploying gas into the home which had an immediate and favorable result as Beam exited the home and surrendered to officers without incident.
