EXETER, Pa. (AP) - Police say a Northeastern Pennsylvania man being pursued by officers barricaded himself in his basement and threatened to cut a gas line to blow up the residence.

The Citizens’ Voice reports (https://bit.ly/1GxDgJy ) Exeter police responded to a domestic violence call Monday and ordered the aggressor, Billy Roosevelt Nipper Jr., to step outside his home.

Police say Nipper refused, and a woman yelled from the doorway that Nipper would hurt any officers that attempted to come inside.

After backup arrived, officers entered the home and were able to apprehend Nipper using a stun gun following a struggle.

Nipper was charged with one count of causing catastrophe, four counts of disorderly conduct, seven counts of reckless endangerment and 12 counts of making terroristic threats.

A preliminary hearing is set for July 7.
