(Photo from the Floyd County Police Department) SWAT was called to a home on Burnett Ferry Road Wednesday morning after a man barricaded himself inside.
According Sgt. Chris Fincher with the Floyd County Police Department, 24-year old Michael Reece Ellis of a Shade Tree Lane address walked into the home carrying a child, went into a bedroom and would not come out.
He eventually turned the child over to family members in the home.
They went outside and called 911.
Ellis barricaded himself in a closet with weapons and SWAT was called.
Once SWAT went inside, Ellis surrendered without incident.
There was a warrant for his arrest on a charge of criminal trespass prior to Wednesday’s incident and more charges could be forthcoming.
