ARIZONA CITY, AZ — A man in Arizona City attacked his father and damaged his home using baseball bats.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office reported that on November 21, Jesse James Flores used both aluminum and wooden baseball bats to attack his father and damage his home in Arizona City.

PCSO deputies say Flores caused extensive damage to the home, including breaking windows, mirrors, and doors as well as making large holes into the walls. His father suffered a busted lip in the assault.

Court records show that Flores barricaded himself in the home, along with his father, son, and sister. Deputies say Flores was on PCP at the time. They reportedly used a bean bag round on Flores, but it did not affect him. He continued to resist arrest as deputies used a Taser to get him into custody.

Damage to the house is reportedly over $5,000.

Flores is now facing multiple charges including criminal damage, assault, and endangerment.
