Sheriff’s Dept and DPS respond to Stand Off

The Maverick County Sheriff Department and Texas Department of Public Safety responded to an area in Las Quintas Boulevard on Friday, April 20th in regards to a male individual being uncooperative with deputies who were performing an arrest on a pending warrant.

Reports state that at some point in time while this individual was being arrested he refused and proceeded to grab and break a beer bottle placing it near his neck area and threatening to kill himself.

Law enforcement agents and the subject had a standoff while deputies tried to convince him to put the bottle down and allow himself to be arrested.

A few minutes later the individual was convinced by one of the sheriff department officials to stop the standoff and turn himself in.

The male adult was arrested and remanded to the Tom Bowles Detention Center.
