KSP: Taylor Co. man arrested after standoff
By Trooper First Class Scotty R. Sharp
Hodgenville, KY - Troopers with Kentucky State Police, Post 4 arrested a Taylor County man after a late night standoff with law enforcement. A little after 7pmET on Sunday, December 5, 2021, Troopers with Post 4 were working an ongoing investigation which led them to a residence on College Street in the Buffalo Community of LaRue County. As a trooper attempted to make contact with an individual inside the residence, the person inside made verbal threats toward the trooper's life.
After the arrival of other KSP troopers, along with other local agencies, troopers made several requests for the individual to come out unarmed. After some time, KSP's Special Response Team (SRT) was called to the scene. Around 12:30 A.M. this morning, the individual surrendered to KSP without further incident.
James A. Deslongchamps, 42 of Campbellsville, was charged with terroristic threatening, 3rd degree, menacing, and resisting arrest. He was lodged in the LaRue County Jail.
Neither Deslongchamps nor any law enforcement units were injured during the incident. KSP was assisted on scene by LaRue County Sheriff's Office, Hodgenville Police Department and LaRue County EMS. KY 61 was shut down for several hours due to the incident.
