The local tactical weapons squad was called out to a rural Hopkins County home Friday night after a man barricaded himself in a pickup and refused to come out.

Details are sketchy, but deputies and other sheriff’s office officials were called to an address on County Road 1126 in the Miller Grove area at 9:11 p.m. for a possible disturbance or family violence incident.

A 58-year-old Cumby man was barricaded in a 2004 Ford F150 in the driveway of a residence when Deputy Koby Hume and others arrived.

According to reports, the man was asked to open the door of the vehicle and show his hands, but either wouldn’t or couldn’t comply.

The Special Response Team, a unit of hand-picked officers from the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office and Sulphur Springs Police Dept. with special weapons and tactical training, was called in to remove the subject from the vehicle “because he was argumentative and refused to exit the vehicle.”

After the team arrived about 11:30 p.m., an “assault” was performed on the vehicle, and the man was removed safely.

It is not clear what happed to the man after he was taken out of the pickup. Arrest reports listed the man as being taken into custody for reisting arrest and making a terroristic threat. The jail log at the Hopkins County Law Enforcement Center, however, only listed that he had been booked on a charged of resisting arrest, while the jail activity report had no information about him.
