TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A West Terre Haute man was arrested for not letting his wife leave their home when police were outside.

Dickie Hedden is facing a charge of criminal confinement.

Police say they went to serve a warrant at his home on Tuesday. The warrant was for violating his probation "for several drug charges.

That's when police say he wouldn't answer the door. Then his wife told police she would try and stand-up and leave and he would grab her and tell her no.

Several officers assisted, for safety reasons.

Hedden remains in the Vigo County Jail for charges of criminal confinement and possession of methamphetamine.
