MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WKRN) — A barricaded suspect in a Mt. Juliet neighborhood has been taken into custody Monday morning after over an hour of negotiations.
Officers responded to a home on Parkwood Drive in the Stonegate community around 4 a.m.
Mt. Juliet police reported officers went to the home to arrest 56-year-old Ken Raye Adams on aggravated assault warrants after he rammed an occupied vehicle during an altercation on North Mt. Juliet Road near Pleasant Grove Road.
Crisis negotiators made efforts to convince Adams to peacefully surrender after he refused requests to exit the home, according to Mt. Juliet police.
Adams exited the home around 5:45 a.m. and was taken into custody with no injuries reported. Adams is being charged with aggravated assault and leaving the scene with property damage. He is expected in court in March of 2022.
A department spokesperson told News 2 a few residents near the suspect’s home were asked to evacuate or shelter in place, with some choosing to stay inside their homes.
No additional information was immediately released.
