Man arrested after disturbance

A Tuesday evening domestic disturbance turned into a “standoff” and led to a Pulaski man’s arrest, according to police.
Pulaski Police Chief Gary Roche said authorities received a report around 4 p.m. Tuesday of an attempted battery by a man chasing a person around property at 155 Oak Hill Lane.
When police arrived on the scene, the suspect went inside the residence and refused to come out. Roche said the alleged victim decided not to press charges so police obtained a warrant for assault against 54-year-old Johnnie “Bones” Elmore.
After a period of time, Elmore allegedly started to cut himself on the arm “for some reason,” Roche said.
When Elmore eventually exited the residence, he started to “advance on” the officers and allegedly refused orders to stop or get down on the ground, the chief said. At that point, he noted, police initiated one shock from a taser gun and the suspect was placed in custody.
Roche said Elmore was transported to the hospital for treatment of the cuts to his arm. He was then transported to New River Valley Regional Jail.
He apparently was released from custody Wednesday morning.
Roche said the incident was resolved around 6:15 p.m.
