Barricade Situation Sparked By Man Wanted On Warrant
A barricade situation in Vinton County Saturday was sparked by a man wanted on a warrant.
Deputies went to a residence on East High Street in McArthur around 8:30 a.m. after a tip led them to Gary Michael Lemay, 29.
Lemay met deputies at the door while holding a knife to his own throat.
Lemay released a female and several children from the home.
Deputies were eventually able to talk him out of the residence.
Lemay was taken to O'Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens for treatment.
