A man arrested Thursday in connection with several felony crimes following a standoff with police in Union City was arrested on suspicion of additional crimes for allegedly assaulting hospital staff, police said. Randell Tuner, 40, of Union City, was initially arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, making criminal threats, false imprisonment and threatening officers, according to the Union City Police Department.
After being transported to a hospital, he was also arrested on suspicion of threatening and assaulting hospital staff, police said. On Thursday at 7:29 a.m., officers responded to the 1800 block of Baylor Street on a report of a domestic violence incident.
When officers tried to speak with the residents of the home, everyone left except Turner, who refused to come outside for several hours. This prompted police to ask nearby residents to shelter-in-place. Around 11:29 a.m., Turner surrendered to police, and he was taken into custody.
