Standoff ends with suspect taken to hospital

BAY, AR (KAIT) - A standoff in Bay ended with the suspect taken to a hospital.

Bay police officers and Craighead County sheriff's deputies responded to Dorton Street Friday around 12:30 p.m.

Police Chief Paul Keith tells Region 8 News a domestic incident led to the standoff with the male suspect.

A series of events caused the house to be surrounded and a SWAT team was called in, according to the chief.

The suspect was non-compliant and Keith says it took about two hours for authorities to get the man out of the house.

He was taken to a Jonesboro hospital for evaluation.

No one was injured in the incident.

Keith says his department has had calls from this household before.
