Beverly man arrested after standoff

BEVERLY - A Beverly man who had guns and knives in his home surrendered to police yesterday afternoon after his girlfriend reported that he had threatened to kill her with a handgun.
Tyrone Lites, 29, of 33 Elliott St., was arrested at about 3 p.m. yesterday outside his home after seven Beverly police officers and an Essex County Sheriff's deputy with a police dog responded to the scene.
It was a tense situation for several minutes, according to police.
Police said they thought Lites had a handgun and grew concerned when he did not answer their phone calls to the residence and did not respond to repeated orders to come out with his hands in the air.
Eventually, Lites was arrested "peacefully," police said.
The incident began at 1:08 p.m. when police got a report of a domestic dispute at 33 Elliott St. When they arrived, a woman told police that Lites had pushed her down and threatened to shoot her with a handgun.
The woman was with a toddler and an adult female.
After questioning the woman at the station, police returned to Elliott Street and arrested Lites. Canine officer Mark O'Brien and his dog, Jurick, also went to the scene. The arrest was made by Beverly officer Harold Geary.
Inside 33 Elliott St., police found three pellet guns on the kitchen table, some of which resembled a handgun, according to police. They also found two large knives with curved blades that were attached to brass knuckles.
The victim had cuts on her feet but refused medical treatment, police said.
"Thankfully, nobody got hurt and it turned out OK," said Lt. Tim Haggerty.
Lites was arrested on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon (a handgun), domestic assault and battery, and two counts of possessing dangerous weapons.
He will be arraigned tomorrow in Salem District Court.
