Eddie Miles Junior is behind bars today, held without bail, accused of a domestic incident last week.
The 46 year old Miles has now been charged with arson and making terrorist threats.
It all began last Sunday when police said Miles barricaded himself in his apartment with his girlfriend, threatened to shoot police and then set his place on fire.
Miles was originally arrested last week on outstanding drug warrants.
Police say Miles has a lengthy criminal history.

The Batavia City Council is left with a proposed budget for the coming financial year that calls for a tax rate decrease.
In his final act as City Manager, Jason Molino submitted a financial plan to council that recommends a property tax rate decrease of 3-percent.
In his budget message issued late Friday afternoon, Molino said the tax rate decrease was due to growth in the city’s tax base.
That growth made possible in large part, he said, to the private take-over of the old county nursing home which did not pay property taxes.
City Council must adopt a final budget by March 31st.
