STANDOFF IN PADEN ENDS PEACEFULLY

 

STANDOFF IN PADEN ENDS PEACEFULLY

 

July 24, 2017

On July 23, 2017, the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Department as well as members of the Belmont Police Department, were sent to the Paden community, due to “standoff” between an individual and a deputy for the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff John Daugherty states that the deputy was checking on a motorist that appeared to had been broken down there in Paden.  Sheriff Daugherty states for unknown reasons at the time, the motorist removed his rifle from inside the vehicle, and the deputy took cover behind his patrol unit with his weapon drawn and requested for back-up.  A few hours later after negotiation, Sheriff Daugherty states that they were able to retrieve the weapon from the motorist with the help of family members.  It was learned that the motorist is a veteran and has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Sheriff Daugherty stated that the motorist was released to family members and his weapon was seized at this time.  The sheriff states that an investigation into this incident in ongoing.  Sheriff Daugherty would like to thank all of those agencies that responded with their officers to assist his deputy.
