SAVANNAH, GA (August 16, 2012) A Savannah man was arrested on battery charges after Metro SWAT Team officers removed him from an attic where he was hiding Wednesday night.

 Jarred Evan Zeigler, 30, of an Emory Drive address off Derenne Avenue was apprehended after a 3 ½-hour operation by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, Hostage Negotiations Team (HNT), violent crimes detectives and the SCMPD Bomb Squad.

 He was charged with domestic violence battery and is being held on two previous warrants after being taken into custody just before midnight.

 Police were called to the residence about 7:15 p.m. after neighbors heard an altercation. A female who lives in the house was seen walking out and then being pulled back in.

 After the house was surrounded, the female exited the house and was taken to a waiting ambulance for examination. Zeigler refused to exit the house and the Bomb Squad robot was dispatched to search for him. He was found in a small attic.
