ACSO: Adair man arrested after 8 hour standoff in Breeding
By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office
The incident began on Monday, May 17, 2021, when Adair County 911 received a call from the Kentucky State Police about an impaired driver on KY 55 North. A deputy was dispatched to area and around 3:30amCT, Deputy Joey Keith located the suspect vehicle and initiated a traffic stop.

After the pursued vehicle crossed through hay fields, visual contact with suspect was lost and the pursuit was terminated.
Deputy Keith and the Adair County Sheriff's Office were able to identify the operator later that day, and warrants for his arrest were obtained.
At approximately 10pmCT, Adair County Sheriff's Deputies went to the residence in an attempt to serve the felony warrants.
The suspect was in the residence and refused to come out, ultimately barricading himself into the residence, where he was observed inside coming to windows with a rifle.
Sheriff Brockman and deputies began negotiating with Phipps. Negotiations lasted for over seven hours. The Kentucky State Police Special Response Team was contacted and was en route to the scene when Phipps agreed to surrender himself to Sheriff Brockman if everyone would back away from the house.

Deputy Joey Keith is the investigating deputy and is leading the investigation.
Adam Phipps of Columbia was lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail on charges of:
