A Pulaski County man was arrested after an all night stand-off with Sheriff's Deputies and members of the Kentucky State Police including the KSP Special Response Team as well as Constable Danny Weddle.
Pulaski Sheriff, Greg Speck, says around 8pm Tuesday deputies responded to the call of a domestic dispute on Woods Road in Nancy, involving 55 year old Ange M. Lane, and his estranged wife, Nicole Lane, age 42.
Ms. Lane had fled to a neighbor's house after allegedly being assaulted by her husband at their residence. She also advised deputies that Ange Lane was heavily armed, and threatened to kill her and any law enforcement officers if she called the police.
Pulaski County EMS personnel treated Nicole for lacerations to the head and before taking her to Lake Cumberland Hospital.
Ange Lane refused repeated requests from officers to exit his home and surrender. Mr. Lane’s 16 year old son and a female acquaintance, Amber Adams, age 32 remained in the residence.
The stand-off continued through the night until Chief Deputy Jeff Hancock contacted the Kentucky State Police for additional assistance. In the early morning hours on Wednesday, members of the Kentucky State Police Special Response Team (SRT) arrived on scene to assist the Sheriff's Deputies and Troopers.
At 2:20pm Wednesday afternoon a pickup truck, occupied by Amber Adams and the juvenile left the residence. Both were interviewed and taken into protective custody.
Mr. Lane later exited the trailer and began a dialog with officers. Members of the Kentucky State Police SRT were able to fire 40mm rubber rounds that temporarily disabled Mr. Lane, who was armed with multiple firearms. The suspect was quickly disarmed and placed under arrest. Over 20 guns were recovered from the residence.
Ange M. Lane was transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries sustained during the apprehension. He was later lodged in the Pulaski County Jail on charges of Assault, 1st Degree-Domestic Violence, Terroristic Threatening, 3rd Degree. Additional charges are forthcoming.
