A Brazos County man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after authorities said he engaged them in a standoff.

According to the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived at the Luza Lane home of Anthony John Luza Jr., 52, around 3 p.m. Tuesday. The deputies were attempting to assist Child Protective Services in checking the welfare of a child. Authorities said Luza barricaded himself in the home and was apprehended about three hours later. Luza was wanted on two misdemeanor warrants, officials said.

No injuries were reported, and no other occupants were found in the home.

Luza is charged with aggravated assault of a public servant, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison, and felony drug possession. Bond on his warrants was set at $21,000, but bond had not been set late Tuesday on the most recent charges.
