"Man arrested after standoff with police in downtown Madison"

A Louisville man faces charges for resisting law enforcement, intimidation, and public intoxication following a standoff with police early Tuesday morning. According to a post on the Madison Police Department Facebook page, the MPD responded to the Central Tavern on the 300 Block of Mulberry in reference to a subject with a firearm. The caller was concerned because the subject was possibly intoxicated. Officers arrived on scene and were told the subject entered a van in the parking lot across from the Central Tavern. Officers approached the van and observed the subject, later identified as Brian K. Hammond, flee to the rear of the van. Officers attempted to make contact with Hammond, but received no response. According to witnesses Hammond entered Central Tavern with a firearm in his waistband. Due to safety concerns a perimeter was secured around the vehicle, and the Madison Police Emergency Response Team and detectives were called to the scene. Officers made several attempts to have Hammond exit the vehicle, but he refused. The Madison Police ERT then used chemical agents inside the vehicle, but Hammond still refused to exit. Detectives were able to speak to Hammond by phone and negotiate with him to exit the vehicle. During a search of the vehicle officers located two replica pellet guns. No one was injured in the incident, and Hammond was placed under arrest without further incident.
