Christmas Eve Family Dispute Turns into Stand-Off

by: Francis Linn, Ozarks First

A Christmas Eve family dispute turns into a stand-off with an armed man in Newton County.

The sheriff’s office says 25-year-old Gavin Amick of Western Grove barricaded himself inside a home with a one-year-old child and refused to come out.

This all stemmed from an earlier family argument.

Authorities say Amick was high on meth.

After several hours, a tactical entry was made to the home.

Amick was arrested, and the child was not harmed.

Amick is in the Newton County jail on various charges with other charges pending.
