Standoff in Berry Creek

Man allegedly assaults wife, mother, then hides in home for hours

With police outside, a man holed up in a home in Berry Creek for hours on Tuesday (Aug. 2) following alleged domestic violence incidents involving his wife and mother.

Butte County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the house on He Le Ve Road after a woman called 911 and said she was hiding in the woods because her husband, Glen Vaughn, 57, had assaulted her and her mother-in-law, according to a BCSO press release. She said Vaughn had a shotgun and crossbow.

When deputies arrived, they found the woman and her mother-in-law outside, but a third, sickly woman was still in the house. Vaughn reportedly refused to come outside and threatened police. After several hours, the deputies forced their way into the home, escorted the sick woman away and arrested Vaughn in a bedroom. He was booked into Butte County Jail for multiple felonies.
