“On December 19, 2012 at 3:32 p.m. the Hays Police Department received a call that a man had threatened a family member with a rifle. Officers from the Hays Police Department and the Fort Hays State University Campus Police responded to the area where the incident occurred. The suspect, 53 year old Bobby G. Nix, who resides at 407 w 4th Apt #3, refused to speak with officers.
The Hays Special Situation Response Team and the KBI Response Team were notified to respond. A perimeter was set up around the residence and a portion of the neighborhood was evacuated. Attempts to have Mr. Nix voluntary surrender were unsuccessful. Officers were eventually forced to physically take Mr. Nix into custody. Mr. Nix was not injured during the arrest.
One officer received a minor cut to his hand during this incident.
Mr. Nix is currently being held in the Ellis County Jail for Aggravated Assault.”
