Local SWAT Called for Fake Hostage Situation
Local SWAT was called to a hostage situation that ended up being all in the head of a man that needs mental health. A woman called police stating that her son called her and said that an unknown man was in the house and had two women held hostage with a gun according to news reports. When police showed up to the house and tried to contact the man with a gun, the son eventually came out and gave them names of both the man with the gun and one of the hostages.
Police recognized the name of the woman given by the son and called her. She was safe on the other side of town. The SWAT team then searched the house and found it empty except for the son. Police think the son had a “mental break with reality” and made the whole thing up in his head. There will be no charges but a mental health report will be written.
