Overnight standoff ends with arrest

An overnight standoff ended with a parolee’s arrest in El Dorado Hills Friday morning.

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, according to a sheriff’s press release. Deputies also received information that the suspect might have had a sawed-off shotgun.

When deputies arrived at the apartment complex on El Dorado Hills Boulevard, they observed a man who fit the description of the subject, Nathan Brown, 38, looking out 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. SWAT surrounded the residence and continued making announcements for several more hours.

The CNT convinced 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. The suspect then exited the building and was taken into custody on charges of obstruction of justice, criminal threats and violating parole.

Information provided does not specify if a shotgun was found. Sgt. Chris Felton said they would not release that information until the investigation wrapped up.
