Barbour County Standoff Ends with Man’s Arrest

Barbour County authorities were involved in a training exercise when they were interrupted to deal with a real-life situation.

Chief Deputy Eddie Ingram says 63-year-old Morris Carroll ran out of gas on the side of the road and went to a neighbor's house to ask for help.

When the neighbor refused, Carroll allegedly threatened to burn down the house.

When a deputy responded to the scene, Carroll allegedly pointed a gun and fired a couple of shots.

The deputy called for back-up and when other officers arrived on the scene, Carroll finally put the gun down and was taken into custody.

Chief Deputy Ingram says Carroll is a Vietnam veteran and has a history of mental illness

Charges against him are pending.

    how can I see the video of Morris Carroll's arrest? I am a neighbor and was not home and missed your news coverage. I would like very much to see it. Can you email me your coverage or how can I pull it up? Thank you for your help.
