— A Janesville teen held a shotgun to his head and refused to surrender to Rock County sheriff’s deputies for a short time Saturday night.

The 17-year-old was arrested at 10:41 p.m. Saturday at home on the city’s north side on two counts of domestic disorderly conduct, negligent use of a weapon, violating probation and failure to comply with an officer, according to reports.


When deputies arrived, they were told that the boy was intoxicated and had been arguing with his parents. Before deputies arrived, his mother had tried to pull a shotgun from his hands.


The teen’s parents were evacuated and the Janesville SWAT team was paged to assist.


Before the SWAT team arrived, the teen surrendered.
