Police used a Taser on a suspect who had been holed up inside a home in north Houston last night.

It happened at an apartment on Noble and Gano. Detectives say the suspect threatened someone with a knife and then barricaded himself inside when officers arrived. SWAT had to be called out and they ended up going in and using a Taser on him.

He's now in jail charged with assault. Police believe he was under the influence of drugs.
