A Bowling Green man was taken into custody around 10 a.m. Tuesday after threatening to harm himself at a Napoleon Road apartment complex.
Justin M. Davis, 30, a resident of the apartment complex, was taken into police custody. He was not injured, but was taken to Wood County Hospital to be evaluated, said Bowling Green police Lt. Ken Fortney.
Davis was later charged with inducing panic and was taken to the Wood County Justice Center.
Bowling Green police were first called to the apartment around 8:26 a.m. The Wood County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team was activated and a BG Fire/EMS squad was staged near the scene.
According to a Bowling Green police report, a neighbor reported Davis had been yelling and screaming for numerous hours and had made threats of harming himself. When officers arrived on scene, they heard yelling coming from his apartment window.
Officers attempted to contact Davis, but he would not answer his phone or the door. The SRT later entered the apartment and took him into custody.
Some residents of the apartment complex were evacuated but told a Sentinel-Tribune reporter they had been instructed not to speak about the incident.
"Due to safety concerns and defendant's threat to shoot himself, the surrounding apartments were evacuated," according to the report.
