Aaron Redmond drove his wife to a Mansfield fire station Friday for medical assistance after he claimed she fell.
Police don’t believe that’s what happened.
Redmond, accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon/family violence, was in the Tarrant County Jail Sunday after he ended a four-hour standoff with police late Friday barricaded in his home with his 3-year-old son, police said. The child was not injured.
The incident began about 6 p.m. Friday when police were called to a Mansfield fire station where paramedics were treating Redmond’s wife.

Redmond, 44, had left the fire station as paramedics treated his wife.
An investigation revealed that Redmond’s wife sustained her injuries during a domestic dispute, police said. She was taken to a local hospital.
Officers then went to Redmond’s home in the 1100 block of Doubletree Lane, where they found Redmond and his son.
“The husband refused to comply with officers and it was determined the incident had changed to barricaded person,” police Sgt. William Yale said in a news release.
Police said they believed Redmond had weapons in the home.
Members of Mansfield’s SWAT unit and a negotiation team responded and worked for four hours before Redmond surrendered without incident shortly after 10:30 p.m. Friday, police said.
