WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Washington County deputies arrested a man early Monday morning after he allegedly set a neighbor's truck on fire, threatened others with a shotgun and barricaded himself inside a Rock Creek home for nearly six hours.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said they responded to a disturbance call involving a weapon at 4100 Northwest Carlton Court around 7:26 p.m. Sunday.

Neighbors told deputies that 63-year-old Judson Russell Holden had set his neighbor’s truck ablaze with gasoline and was threatening other neighbors with a shotgun.

Holden had retreated back into his home when deputies arrived. WCSO said deputies tried to communicate with Holden, but he was not cooperating and would not come out of the house.

Deputies also learned that Holden’s 95-year-old mother was inside the home with him.

After calling in the Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT) and the Crisis Negotiations Unit (CNU), deputies tried for several hours to coax Holden out of the house.

WCSO said Holden repeatedly came out holding a shotgun and cursing. During one of these instances, TNT members were able to get his elderly mother out of the house safely.

Once Holden was back inside the home, deputies deployed a gas irritant to get him to come out.

Although he had a gas mask, the gas was too much for Holden and he surrendered around 1:50 p.m., according to deputies.

He was booked into the Washington County Jail on multiple charges including arson, menacing, and felon in possession of a firearm.
