Suspect, Timothy Washington, Arrested After SWAT Standoff
For nearly 2 hours, members of the Coweta County SWAT team used the PA on their armored “Bearcat” to plead with suspect Timothy Washington to come out with his hands empty. CCSO Deputies had shut down Highway 29 south in front of the building during the operation for safety concerns.
Around 3:22 AM, he finally headed their commands and came out of the room at the Red Carpet Inn that he had fled to.
Video of the moment he comes out of the room and is taken into custody can be seen below.
