Police surround house after man threatens to shoot 21-year-old
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -
A Clarksville man has been arrested after threatening to shoot a 21-year-old man and refusing to come out of his home once police arrived.
Around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, police responded to a call from a young man being threatened with a shotgun.
According to the report, the 21-year-old man was dropping his 18-year-old girlfriend off at the residence of Johnathan Hargadine, 50, when Hargadine came outside with a shotgun and threatened to shoot him.
The 21-year-old and 18-year-old left immediately, fearing the threat was real, and called police from a nearby business.
Once officers arrived, Hargadine refused to come outside although police could see him from the window.
Police established a phone call with Hargadine's wife, who was also inside the residence.
She told them that Hargadine would not allow her to leave and that he would not come to the door.
The tactical unit and crisis negotiators were called to the scene and authorities surrounded the house.
Around 3 a.m., Hargadine fell asleep, allowing his wife to leave the residence.
Officers were able to convince Hargadine to come outside around 4 a.m. and take him into custody without further incident or injury.
He is charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment and violation of a conditional order of release from a former incident.
