A Forestdale man has been charged with the attempted murder of three sheriff's deputies after they responded to a domestic violence call.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded around 11:30 p.m. on Curtis Lane off Cherry Avenue in Forestdale. They had received a report of 21-year-old female victim being beaten by her husband, who also allegedly threatened to harm their toddler. The woman escaped by hitting him with her car.
When deputies arrived, the child was at the home alone and was checked by paramedics.
The suspect returned while deputies were on the scene. Deputies say the suspect, Jason Allen Hill, 24, pulled a pistol and pointed it at deputies during the incident. After a struggle, Hill was disarmed and arrested.
He was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries, then taken to the Jefferson County jail where he's being held without bond.
Hill is facing an assortment of charges including three counts of attempted murder, possession of marijuana, second-degree and third-degree domestic violence, chemical endangerment of a minor child, carrying a pistol without a license, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and second-degree criminal mischief.
