A father and son are being held in Spokane County Jail after an overnight SWAT standoff, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said.

Jerry Everett, Jr., 49, and Jerry Everett, III, 26, were both booked into jail before 6 a.m. Friday, according to jail records. The Sheriff’s Office was called to a home in the 11500 block of East 16th Avenue early Friday, according to a news release, on suspicions the two men were inside. Both Everetts have extensive criminal histories and outstanding felony warrants, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

When the two men saw authorities outside the home, they barricaded themselves inside, according to the release. A SWAT team was called and eventually entered the residence. During the scuffle, Everett, III, allegedly assaulted Laslo, the police dog assisting in the raid. The dog was not seriously injured.

Everett, Jr., was booked into jail on charges of theft, trafficking stolen property and theft of a motor vehicle, according to jail records. Everett, III, has an outstanding felony warrant for escaping community custody, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Both men could appear in court to face the charges as early as today.
