MIDLAND - A Midland man was arrested on six counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

55-year-old James Lister is accused of driving his car into the front of a home Tuesday evening.

The Midland Police Department responded Tuesday evening to a home on the 4700 block of Leisure Drive in reference to a burglary in progress.

Witnesses Lister was banging on the door and windows of the home, trying to get inside

Police say after occupants refused to let him in, Lister drove his white 2000 Lincoln Continental into the front of the residence. The six individuals who were inside were able to escape as Lister entered the residence. Lister then began destroying the house and barricaded himself inside.

Lister was believed to have access to a weapon inside the home, so the SWAT team and negotiators were called out. Lister eventually surrendered without further incident.
