Last Sunday night, a hit-and-run crash in Phoenix led to a barricade situation after police caught up with the driver who had fled from the scene. According to the Phoenix Police Department and AZ Family, the 52-year-old man was involved in a minor collision but did not stop and remain at the scene, which is required by Arizona law.
According to investigators, the unidentified victim followed the driver from where the collision occurred, near Interstate 17, to a house at 31st and Dunlap Avenues. According to local authorities, the victim dialed 911 after the individual pointed a firearm at him. Officers surrounded the home, and several hours later, he surrendered. He was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
