GARLAND COUNTY (KTHV) – A man has been taken into custody after a standoff with Garland County Sheriff’s deputies.

According to GCSO, deputies were trying to serve a warrant on February 18th to 39-year-old Michael Ray Jackson around 6:16 p.m. at the 100 block of McCoy Lane when Jackson apparently barricaded himself in his home and threatened to hurt himself.

Deputies said a friend of Jackson’s came out of the home, warning officers that Jackson had taken some sort of medication and had weapons inside.

Negotiators were able to coax Jackson out the home and arrested promptly afterward. He has been charged with one count of domestic battery, five counts of terroristic threatening and resisting arrest.

    It’s too bad that he wasn’t a Cherokee Nation Marshal! If he were, his name wouldn’t be plastered in the news sites. I find it repugnant that an ordinary citizen is treated differently than a member of law enforcement. I’m disappointed but not surprised.
