A Lake County deputy is recovering after arresting a man armed with an ax.
Deputies were called to a domestic situation in Pleasant Plains Township on Wednesday where they found the man barricaded inside a home armed with an ax and a baseball bat.
The officers had to break a window to get at the subject and one officer suffered cuts to his head as a result. The subject was tazed and then placed under arrest.
The injured deputy needed stitches but is expected to be okay.
