A standoff with a Spalding County woman who allegedly assaulted her husband before barricading herself inside their home Sunday morning came to a conclusion hours later following a response by the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office and Griffin Police Department.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, deputies responded at 9:32 a.m. to a domestic disturbance at 505 Barnesville Road.

Upon their arrival, they were informed that Kimberly Tullock had allegedly assaulted her husband and was barricaded inside the residence with a possible firearm.

Her husband was located outside the residence.

Deputies secured the area and called for assistance from the Special Operations Unit (SOU). SOU members arrived and, along with investigators of the Criminal Investigations Division, attempted to establish communications with Tullock.

After several hours, SOU members, with the assistance of the Griffin Police Department Special Response Team (SRT), made entry into the home.

Kimberly Tullock was located and offered resistance. Team members were able to take her into custody without further incident. No injuries were reported.

She was transported by deputies to WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital for an evaluation.

Dix offered his thanks to the Griffin Police Department’s Special Investigative Unit and Special Response Team for their assistance. Additional thanks goes to members of the Spalding County Fire Department and to personnel from WellStar Spalding Regional Emergency Medical Services.
