A Prescott Valley man has been arrested after allegedly taking a teenager hostage and barricading himself inside a downtown Prescott restaurant.
Prescott police say 24-year-old Taylor Calhoun was booked Monday night into the Yavapai County Jail. He's being held on suspicion of aggravated assault, kidnapping, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
They say Calhoun was wanted by Prescott Valley police on several domestic violence charges for incidents allegedly involving his wife last week.
Prescott police say Calhoun was spotted by officers in a grocery store parking lot about 6 p.m. Monday and fled.
Calhoun allegedly grabbed a 17-year-old boy around the neck and challenged the officers, then ran alone into the restaurant and locked himself in a bathroom.
Police say Calhoun later surrendered and was arrested. They say he wasn't armed.
