HCSO SWAT Responds to Barricaded Suspect


Hamilton County, TN – On Sunday, January 8, 2023 at approximately 1:00 am, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies responded to 7855 Huntington Forest Drive for the report of a disorder. Upon arrival, deputies found a male and female in the garage of the residence in an argument.

The female requested the male, Charles Brown, to leave the residence. Shortly thereafter, despite commands from deputies to remain in the garage, Brown ran into the residence and locked himself inside. The female advised deputies that there were several weapons inside the residence and deputies created a perimeter around the property.

Deputies then gave numerous orders for Brown to exit the residence. At this time, deputies discovered that the female had an Order of Protection against Brown and that he had numerous felony warrants out of Hamilton County Criminal Court. Brown began to threaten deputies from inside the residence stating he had a rifle. Deputies on scene then requested HCSO SWAT personnel to respond to the residence.

HCSO SWAT personnel responded and safely took Brown into custody. He was turned over to patrol deputies on scene for arrest. Brown was then transported to a local medical facility for medical review. While at the hospital, Brown threatened the life of a deputy.

After being medically cleared, he was brought to the Silverdale Detention Center where he was booked and charged with the following:

- Resisting Arrest

- Violation of Order of Protection

- Retaliation Against an Officer

In addition to the aforementioned charges, Brown also had warrants on file for the following:

- Burglary (x2)

- Auto Burglary

- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

- Financial Responsibility

- Domestic Assault

- Aggravated Domestic Assault (x2)

- Possession of a Firearm by a Felon

- Rape

- Child Abuse

- Continued Sexual Abuse of a Child

In addition to the charges above, Charles Brown has been arrested dozens of times in Hamilton County.

Due to the efforts of the initial deputies and SWAT personnel, this potentially dangerous and volatile situation was concluded without any serious injury to the suspect or law enforcement.
