Special weapons and tactics forces executed search and arrest warrants in South Lake Tahoe where a motorcycle club member was taken into custody on suspicion of committing several felonies.
South Lake Tahoe Police Department authorities used SWAT because they considered arresting Anthony Corbin a high-risk situation. Corbin, 46, is a member of the South Lake Tahoe Brotherhood Motorcycle Club.
He is suspected of beating a 34-year-old South Lake Tahoe man in mid-March. The victim was left with significant injuries, including broken bones.
While authorities investigated that incident, Corbin on Monday allegedly drew a knife on the same man and threatened to kill him, a police press release states. Corbin's wife tried to defuse the situation by standing between the two men, and Corbin then "battered" her, the press release states.
Police said Corbin's wife turned to the police for help. She was placed in a safe location, away from the Corbin home on William Avenue.
On Tuesday, Corbin surrendered during the warrant execution and was arrested on multiple charges, including suspicion of being an ex-felon in possession of firearms, assault with a deadly weapon and battery. A search turned up a shotgun, a rifle, a handgun with high-capacity magazines and drug paraphernalia.
