Black Eagle man charged after reportedly threatening officers with spiked bat

Curtis Wayne Stanley, Jr., of Black Eagle has been charged with several felonies after allegedly threatening Cascade County Sheriff's deputies with a spiked bat (scroll down for photo).

Court documents state that a Sheriff's deputy went to a residence on Montana Avenue on Thursday, November 15th, in order to perform a court-ordered eviction.

Stanley reportedly peered through a window, saw the deputy, and refused to answer the door.

A second deputy and the property manager were then called to the residence by the first officer.

When the deputies unlocked the door, they discovered that it was blocked by something; one of the deputies had to push open the door using his shoulder.

Upon entering the residence, the deputies were confronted by Stanley who came into the living room holding a metal baseball bat with spikes attached to it.

Court documents state that Stanley was about five feet away from the deputies, and they pointed their guns at him and ordered him to drop the bat.

After "several tense minutes," Stanley dropped the bat; he was then taken into custody.

Stanley is charged with two counts of felony assault with a weapon, two counts of felony assault on a peace officer, a misdemeanor count of obstructing a peace officer, and misdemeanor criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.

Stanley has a conviction in Cascade County for burglary, and is currently on probation for that offense.

He also has several misdemeanor convictions for partner/family member assault, criminal trespass, and obstructing a peace officer.
