Around 4 pm on Tuesday, a member of parliament went to Hamilton’s residence on block 25400 on County Highway 49 and issued a protection order.
Hamilton refused to speak to his adjutant, according to the sheriff’s office. The suspect then appeared to be driving a front loader with a bale of hay and tried to thrust a secondary vehicle out of the property. The lieutenant was not in the car.
According to the release, Hamilton left the cab of the loader and the adjutant deployed a taser to him, but with no effect. Hamilton retreated to his home, followed by a five-hour standoff.
The suspect was released after being detained after the SWAT team fired tear gas five times at around 9:05 pm. No injuries have been reported.
