The Kentucky State Police Special Response Team removed James Randall Perkins, 37, of Corinth, from his Three Springs motel room after a nearly eight-hour standoff Sept. 16.

Perkins barricaded inside the room at 2 p.m. and was taken into custody just before 10 p.m.

Police said Perkins, repeatedly, agreed to leave the room and then refuse to come out.

He was taken into custody for being a danger to himself and others and was taken to a medical facility for observation.
