CLINTON — A man was arrested by Clinton police after he fled from Salt Lake City police and arrived home, barricading and refusing arrest until a SWAT team was called and he surrendered.

Clinton police said they were called to check the area of 1600 North and 2900 West, near the man’s home, at 10:49 a.m. on Tuesday. At approximately 1:30 p.m., police posted on Facebook asking the public to avoid the area.

The man was found to have a no-bail warrant out for his arrest, which was indicated by police to have been regarding separate events.

The man eventually arrived at his home and officers attempted to arrest him, but he fled on foot into the house. He then refused to surrender and barricaded himself inside.

Authorities said that because of his criminal history, warrant, and the fact that he had fled Salt Lake City police, the North Davis Metro SWAT Team was called in to assist. The SWAT team used negotiation tactics to get the man to surrender safely, according to Clinton police.

The suspect is currently being interviewed by detectives from both Clinton and Salt Lake City task forces.
