A Springfield man was arrested and taken to the Clark County Jail on Sunday morning after police said he refused to obey orders to exit a residence following a domestic dispute while officers believed he was armed, according to a police report.

Tyren A. Thompson, 24, of 35 Englewood Road in Springfield, was arrested on charges of domestic violence, using weapons while intoxicated and obstructing officials business, according to a report from the Springfield Police Division.
