UPDATE: Police identify suspect arrested following Tahoe Park barricade

TahoePark.jpgADGER, ANTWAN-49.jpg A man who surrendered peacefully after barricading himself inside a Tahoe Park home this afternoon has been identified by Sacramento police as 49-year-old Antwan Adger (pictured).

He was booked into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of kidnapping, false imprisonment and burglary. Police spokesman Officer Doug Morse said authorities found that Adger also had a felony warrant from a jurisdiction outside Sacramento County.

Police said they are still trying to ascertain whether Adger is the motorist who fled from the California Highway Patrol and disappeared into a house on 64th Street moments after crashing his vehicle.

Initially, police believed the suspect had held a woman in the house hostage. A woman left the home safely at 2:20 p.m. -- about 60 minutes before the suspect surrendered.

Earlier today, police had evacuated the neighborhood as they surrounded the house with the SWAT team and negotiators. Police were in contact with the man in the house at 64th Street and Second Avenue.

The incident began shortly before noon when an outside agency was pursuing a vehicle for a traffic violation, Morse said. The vehicle crashed in the area of Broadway and Kroy Way.
