COLUMBIA — A man who held victims in a bedroom and assaulted deputies with a knife was arrested Saturday morning, according to the Boone County Sheriff's Department.
According to a press release:
At about 4:35 a.m., deputies arrived at a residence in the 5500 block of Pinehurst Lane after a call from a subject claiming to be a gunshot wound victim. However, additional calls indicated the caller had not been shot, possessed weapons and was possibly under the influence of one or more unknown substances.
Deputies on the scene found that there were other people in the house, some of whom were being held in a bedroom against their will. Deputies were unable to gain the perpetrator's cooperation and deputies were assaulted with a knife. No deputies or victims in the house were injured.
The deputies forced entry into the bedroom to try to assist the victims and arrest the perpetrator.
Antonio Vaughn, 33, was arrested on suspicion of two counts of felonious restraint, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, endangering the welfare of a child in the second degree, assaulting a law enforcement officer in the second degree, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana under 35 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. A bond amount has yet to be set for the armed criminal action charge; the bond for the other charges totals $28,500.
