Jones County man arrested after three-hour standoff

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County man barricaded himself inside his home on Thursday morning and allegedly held back police with a gun until negotiators were able to convince him to turn himself in.

Authorities traveled to the home of Carl Smith, 38, after learning of a 6 a.m. 911 call concerning a domestic dispute at Smith's home on Earl Brashier Road.

When authorities arrived, Smith refused to allow them inside and allegedly brandished a handgun. Negotiators then reasoned with Smith, and three-and-one-half hours later Smith gave up and walked outside.

Smith was arrested and is now charged with aggravated assault.
