Arlington man remanded in custody after hour-long break with SWAT officers – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

A man has been remanded in custody after a fight with SWAT officers in Arlington on Sunday.

According to the Arlington Police Department, officers were dispatched to a home in block 4500 of Smokey Quartz Lane at about 6 p.m. 10:25 to investigate a reported shooting.

Police said when officers arrived, they learned that a male suspect had fired shots at an unmanned vehicle before returning to the home.

According to police, the SWAT team was called in to help. The officers did not believe there were others in the house with him.

Because the man is believed to be armed, officers set up a perimeter around the house and worked for hours to get in touch with him and get him out, police said.

On Sunday afternoon, the suspect came out of the house and was arrested, police said.

Arlington police said the suspect had a mental health crisis, which led to him firing the shots that prompted the call.

He was transported to the Mental Health Center at John Peter Smith Hospital for further treatment and assistance.

No one was injured in the incident, police said.
