February 2-- A police standoff in Montgomery County Saturday night was resolved without injuries.
Dal Canady covered the story for WTOC-TV and tells us a domestice dispute between former Vidalia Police Lieutenant Tony Phllips and his wife at his home on Sawmill Road in Higgston sparked a call to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.
After Phillips refused to come out of his house, a response team from the Georgia State Patrol entered the residence and reportedly used tear gas to subdue Phillips. His wife was not in the house at the time and was not injured.
Two years ago Phillips was arrested in Treutlen County for sodomy with a female juvenile.
