Hooks man injured in fall from attic during standoff from police

Posted: Updated:
HOOKS, TX (KSLA) -

A Hooks, TX man has been taken to a local hospital after a standoff with police at his home.

It all started at the home in the 1300 block of Hwy 82, when officers arrived and attempted to serve an emergency detention order. When the man allegedly refused to come out, Bowie County SWAT, Hooks police officers and the Texas Department of Public Safety were called in.

Police say they did not know if the man was armed, and did not want to take any chances due to his mental state. After hours of negotiations, the SWAT team made their way inside and found the man lying on the floor with an arm injury.

Police say the man had been hiding in the attic and fell through the ceiling.

It's not clear what charges he might face, if any. His name has not been released.
