LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A police standoff ended at a home in La Vergne Tuesday morning after a man hid in the attic for over four hours.

La Vergne police were called to a home on Constitution Avenue around 5 a.m.

La Vergne police told News 2 an officer on patrol saw the man enter a home and called for assistance. The suspect, later identified as 31-year-old Terrence Sparks, was involved in a police pursuit last week. THP had a warrant out on Sparks for evading arrest.

Sparks is also wanted out of Tipton County for attempted murder.

The SWAT team entered the home and Sparks was taken into custody without incident thanks to a family member who was able to communicate with him via text message.

Sparks faces charges from the Tennessee Highway Patrol and additional charges may be filed by the La Vergne Police Department depending on the outcome of the warrant investigation.

Sparks is in the Rutherford County Jail.

No additional information was immediately released.
