SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC) - Southaven police officers said the stand-off that ensued Friday afternoon with a domestic violence suspect who barricaded himself inside a dumpster has ended.

Officials said Terrell Williams was safely taken into custody.

Williams was wanted by DeSoto and Hinds County investigators. He was wanted for domestic violence in DeSoto County, and he was wanted on a parole warrant in Hinds County.

A Southaven officer spotted Williams and tried to get him to pull over.

That's when Williams sped into Civic Center Apartments near Highway 51 and Church Road, ran out of his vehicle, and dove into a dumpster in an attempt to hide from officers.
