Police: Man arrested after brief standoff

Tri-City HeraldFebruary 5, 2014 

Benton County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man early Wednesday after a brief standoff, officials said.

Officers, led by the county’s gang unit, went at 11:50 p.m. Tuesday to a trailer at 2105 N. Steptoe Street to serve a state Department of Corrections warrant on Shelby Ryan Haddock, 32, sheriff’s Lt. Chuck Jones said. But after they were allowed inside the trailer, Haddock pulled two knives on the officers, but didn’t charge them, Jones said.

“He said he didn’t want to go back to prison,” Jones said.

Richland Police officers, who were assisting with the arrest, fired rubber bullets at Haddock, but he didn’t surrender, Jones said. Kennewick Police officers then fired bean bag rounds at him and he turned himself in. He was taken into custody around 12:20 p.m.

Haddock is known to be affiliated with a gang, Jones said.

The arrest was not related to a drive-by shooting that was reported at the same Kennewick trailer park Monday night, Jones said.

Haddock was sentenced to four years in prison in 2009 after pleading guilty to driving at high speeds while high on marijuana and injuring a passenger when his car flipped during a police chase, according to Herald archives. He was arrested again last year for suspicion of prowling vehicles.
