Tennessee drug agent arrested after standoff with SWAT

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A standoff between SWAT teams and an agent with the 10th Judicial District Drug Task Force ended in the agent's arrest early Friday.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the incident began with a domestic violence call late Thursday night in Bradley County.

Deputies were told agency Bobby Queen was in a house with an automatic weapon, refusing to come out.

A negotiator talked with Queen for more than five hours before he surrendered before dawn Friday and was arrested.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is aiding the investigation.
