Franklin County Stand-Off

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department diffused a tense situation on Wednesday night. Family members contacted the sheriff’s department when a 40 year old villa Ridge man said he was suicidal. When deputies arrived the man was holding a knife and threatening the deputies if they came any closer. The man went back inside his trailer after a taser, which had no effect, was fired. The man yelled that he was going to blow his house up and smoke was then seen coming from inside the trailer. Bean bag rounds were fired through windows and Boles Fire Fighters were able to spray water inside the residence through the windows to distinguishing the fire.
The Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team was called in to assist. The man eventually came back outside on the porch and SWAT Team members were able to approach and Tase him. The man fell to the ground and was taken in to custody. He was checked out by Meramec Ambulance personnel and transported to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis.
