Law Enforcement Works Together to Avert Tragedy During North Highlands SWAT Standoff
NORTH HIGHLANDS -- A SWAT incident on Jan. 29 had the flashing lights and armored gear of the kind of scene that could slide into grief for the family of an officer or for the barricaded person they had been called out to confront. But that day in North Highlands tragedy was averted. "He was saying he wanted to blow up the trailer within the trailer complex," said Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Ian Carver. "The subject had violated a restraining order and was back at his wife's home and he was refusing to leave when deputies arrived."
