Friday evening 9-1-1 got a call from residents at an apartment house in Lincoln Beach that a man was stabbing their front door and that he had just bashed out their windows with a baseball bat.
Once inside, deputies say Jason Estes proceeded to smash his way through the apartment. The family bolted for the door and escaped.
Arriving deputies took Estes into custody. After administering first aid for some cuts from the broken glass, Estes was taken to the county jail where he was booked for burglary, assault, menacing and disorderly conduct. His bail was set at just under $300,000.
Investigators say the two families have had an ongoing dispute for some time and that in the current incident, alcohol may have been a factor.
