Putnam Standoff Ends in Arrest

A Putnam County standoff ended peacefully, but it wasn't without some tense moments. The nine-hour standoff led to the arrest of 55-year old Ricky Reynolds, who surrendered after law officers used several tactics including tear gas to urge him out of the home. Reynolds is from Scott Depot and faces several charges including fleeing, assault on a police officer and obstructing a police officer, according to a news release from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department. Reynolds was involved in several hit-and-run accidents Wednesday evening in the Scott Depot area, and was arrested early Thursday morning.
