Police standoff ends with arrest of suspect

FAYETTEVILLE – Michael Hall is now in custody after barricading himself in a home near Fayetteville on Feb. 11.

Hall is accused of hitting a deputy cruiser n Montgomery County and narrowly missing the officer as well as several felony warrants for violent offenses. Hall, 33, was seen driving a tan Mercury Mountaineer with a missing bumper. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office got reports that Hall could be in the Northern Brown County or Southern Clinton County area.

“We got a tip he was in a particular vehicle heading toward our county,” Chief Deputy Carl Smith said. “Our detectives went in plain cars and happened to spot they vehicle. They followed it to a drive-way and got the house surrounded. Mr. Hall would not make contact with us. He would not come out.”

Because Hall had locked himself in the house and would not come out. The Brown County Sheriff’s Department contacted the Clermont County SWAT Unit to assist in removing Hall from the home.

“Mr. Hall was found hiding in a couch,” Smith said. “I don’t know how he got into it, but yes, he was found in a couch.”

Smith said he is glad that Hall is behind bars.

“The citizens of Ohio are better off with this man behind bars,” Smith said. “Anybody that doesn’t care enough about himself or care about hurting a law enforcement officer really isn’t going to care about the ordinary citizen out there. Everybody is a lot better off with this guy behind bars.”
