Police responded to the Trellis Apartments on Brasseler Boulevard around 10 p.m. Officers arrested and charged one person, Trevor Ballinger who is an active military member, with aggravated assault.

Items were also found in the residence that led police to request the U. S. Army's Explosive Ordinance Disposal team for support.
