A Sioux Falls man is in jail Wednesday facing 10 different charges -- including assault on a police officer.
Rocky Thomas Traversie Jr. is no stranger to trouble.
KSFY found that Traversie has had 62 charges against him since he was 18. He's now 31.
Wednesday's charges -- three counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement, five counts of kidnapping, and two counts of aggravated domestic assault -- aren't even his first in this past month.
Police were called to Traversie's house around 7 Wednesday morning by a 17-year-old boy who escaped through a window. He told neighbors that Traversie was assaulting two women and wouldn't let anyone leave the house.
"He ended up, I'm not sure where this came from but he had a brick with him. He used this brick and hit his mother and then he also hit his sister with that brick," said Officer Sam Clemens with the Sioux Falls Police Department.
Officer Clemens says Traversie left the scene but when he came back, there were three officers arriving to arrest him. A fight broke out. Backup was called -- 18 officers ended up on the scene.
Adnan Shibley is frequently in the neighborhood to pick up and drop off his child who lives next door.
"I have a two-year-old that lives there. It's kind of freaky you know, seeing stuff like this happen," said Shibley.
Flashing lights in this area are not uncommon he says.
"It's all one duplex and then always, there's something going on like fights -- cops always on this block and always drive by. I was like why are there cops in the parking lot. And sometimes they would be parked right here in front of our house and I would go ask them 'can I help you guys, what's going on' and they were like 'oh nothing just checking' and they leave," said Shibley.
Shibley says with the constant commotion, he wants to find a different place for his family to live.
The investigation is still ongoing and Traversie's next step is a court appearance Thursday.
The three officers Traversie assaulted were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
