A Roswell man was arrested the evening of June 5 at the Ramada Inn after barricading himself in his hotel room from Roswell Police and SWAT.

Officers responded to the hotel’s request to remove a guest from the property. According to hotel staff, the subject was causing a disturbance in the lobby.

Prior to officers’ arrival, the man barricaded himself inside his hotel room. When officers attempted to make contact with the subject, he threatened to shoot the officers.

The North Fulton SWAT and Crisis Negotiations Teams responded to the scene, and members of the Crisis Negotiation Team were in contact with the subject.

The man ceased communications with crisis negotiators and refused to respond to further attempts to make contact.

The subject was taken into custody for “terroristic threats against law enforcement” and is currently being cleared by medical staff for a single Taser deployment.

The subject is a white male, in his 50s. According to Roswell police, no further information on the subject is being released at this time.
