Posted:

PARIS, TX -- A Paris man is behind bars after police say he took his girlfriend hostage and threatened to slice his own neck.  
Police say 30 year old Jorge Miranda was subdued by a swat team yesterday after he pulled his girlfriend into a  bathroom and held a knife to his throat.  
     
A hostage negotiator convinced Miranda to let the woman go and that's when swat officers pounced.  
   
An officer was cut on the hand during the struggle.  
     
It all happened at the woman's home after police say the two got in an argument.  
     
There were children in the home at the time, but no one else was hurt.
     
Miranda is charged with aggravated assault, unlawful restraint, and resisting arrest.
