Kennewick man arrested after standoff

A Kennewick man was arrested early Wednesday after being shot with rubber bullets and bean bag rounds during a police standoff.

Benton County Sheriff's deputies, led by the county's gang unit, were trying to serve a state Department of Corrections warrant on Shelby Ryan Haddock.

Lt. Chuck Jones said the officers had gone at 11:50 p.m. Tuesday to a mobile home at 2105 N. Steptoe St.

After they were allowed inside the mobile home, Haddock, 32, pulled two knives on the officers, but didn't attack them, Jones said. "He said he didn't want to go back to prison," Jones said.

Richland police officers, who were helping with the arrest, fired rubber bullets at Haddock, but he didn't surrender, Jones said.

The, Kennewick police officers fired bean bag rounds at him and he turned himself in. He was taken into custody at 12:20 a.m.

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

His arrest was not related to a drive-by shooting reported at the same Kennewick mobile home 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.
