The suspect from Tuesday's S.W.A.T. standoff in Oildale isn't the only person behind bars because of the incident.
A woman in Oildale who didn't want to be identified said David Aldridge has been causing more problems than just the standoff.
She said Aldridge, who is known in the area as Spiderman, was jumping from house to house and broke his ankle trying to jump on a truck.
"I've heard he does these things and gets in fights with people and does terrible things," said a neighbor.
Tuesday's standoff ended peacefully with Aldridge turning himself into deputies.
After that, deputies found meth in the house and arrested the owner, Matt McCoy.
McCoy was there during the standoff.
"He actually did assist us in getting a lady out of the residence which helped us during the call out," said Sgt. Richard Wood from the Sheriff's Department.
David Turner has lived in the neighborhood for 20 years and said the house on Alendale has been a problem since McCoy moved in a year ago.
"I think it was time for something to happen and they threw up a flag that you couldn't ignore," said Turner.
"As we were wrapping, up a lot of neighbors thanked us so apparently there was a problem going on," said Wood.
Aldridge was booked into the Kern County jail on charges of weapons, possession of stolen property, burglary, and assault with a deadly weapon against a peace officer.
