A Bedford County man is behind bars after a standoff with police.

State police say it started in a home along Brookside drive in Hopewell Township around 2:00 p.m. last Saturday.

Jason Gokey allegedly got into an argument with a woman, and destroyed $525 worth of plasticware she owned.

After that, police say Gokey loaded a handgun that was in the home, and fired it into a porch between him, the victim, and a second woman.

No one was hurt and Gokey left the home.

Later, he was found at a home in South Woodbury Township and refused to come out.

After about 3 hours, police made it inside and arrested him.
