Gilmanton standoff comes to end


RIDGE POLICE AT 899-5009. A STANDOFF IN GILMANTON CAME TO A PEACEFUL END OF THIS EVENING. POLICE WERE CALLED TO A HOME AROUND 3:00 FOR A BELLIGERENT DRUNK MAN STUMBLING AROUND THE YARD, BLEEDING FROM HIS HEAD. MICHAEL TATE WAS BARRICADED IN HIS HOME AND THREATENED TO SHOOT THE OFFICER. POLICE COULD NOT CONVINCE HIM TO COME OUT, SO THEY USED TEAR GAS TO SUBDUE HIM. NO OFFICERS WERE HURT. ANYTIME ANYONE MAKES A THREAT WITH A FIREARM TO SHOOT ESPECIALLY LAW ENFORCEMENT BUT ANYBODY, WE TAKE IT SERIOUSLY AND HAVE TO INVESTIGATE IT FULLY. SHELLEY: HE’S CHARGED WITH CRIMINAL THREATENING.
