A standoff overnight Thursday into Friday led to a parolee being arrested in El Dorado Hills.
On Feb. 13, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office was notified that a subject wanted for alleged parole violation was living in El Dorado Hills, a press release stated. They had information that he may have been in possession of a sawed-off shotgun.
When deputies arrived at the residence on El Dorado Hills Boulevard, they observed a man who fit the description of the subject, Nathan Brown, 38, looking out of a window. They surrounded the building and began making announcements.
This continued for several hours with no response from Brown. Just before midnight, the Crisis Response Unit, made up of SWAT, Explosive Ordinance Disposal and the Crisis Negotiation Team, was called in. SWAT surrounded the residence and continued making announcements for several more hours.
The CNT was able to convince a female to exit the apartment after making contact. About an hour later, the CNT informed Brown that they had no intention of leaving until he surrendered.
He then exited the building and was taken into custody on charges of obstruction of justice, criminal threats and violating parole. The case is still under investigation.
