On Tuesday, officers were called about a battery in progress at 9:21 a.m. in the 6400 block of North Ridge, police said. Upon arrival, they discovered an armed man was possibly barricaded inside a building.

A SWAT team arrived at the scene for assistance, and the situation resolved peacefully with Jones’ arrest by 12:54 p.m., police said.

Jones’ bail is set at $80,000, and his next court date is scheduled for Feb. 13, according to Cook County inmate records.
