STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — Oktibbeha County sheriff's deputies arrested a man from the Mississippi Delta Thursday night following a six-hour standoff with him triggered by a chase that ended in a lake near Sturgis.
Doctors treated Gary Boyles, 39, of Greenville, for injuries before deputies booked him into the Oktibbeha County Jail on an assault on an officer charge.
The sheriff's office said Boyles' vehicle hit spike strips, which sent him and his vehicle into a lake off of Highway 12.
Negotiators with the Starkville and Tupelo police departments and the FBI convinced the man to surrender.
